What we do
We are here not for income, but for outcome
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor – “sweat equity” – into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses. Warren County Habitat for Humanity locates and trains a Sponsor/Advocate/Friend (SAF) for each Partner family. This individual or couple works with each Partner throughout the process of planning, building and settling into their new home. Habitat’s philosophy is to work WITH not FOR our Partners.
Warren County Habitat for Humanity was established as an organization in 1995. We are a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that supports the mission of Habitat for Humanity International which is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. We invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Construction of the first WCHFH house began in 1997 and WCHFH has tried to build one house per year ever since. The following are the homes completed since 1998.
