Habitat for Humanity serves as a home-ownership program for dedicated, low-income families in need of a safe and affordable home and works together with qualified low-income families, individuals, and area businesses to build or renovate houses. Houses are sold to families at no profit and without interest. The money generated by mortgage payments are put in the “Fund for Humanity” and are used, along with donations and thrift store proceeds, to build or renovate more houses. In this way, donated resources are continually recycled again and again.
