Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing organization. The work of Habitat for Humanity is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to God’s love through the work of eliminating poverty housing.

Habitat for Humanity partners with individuals of all faiths, or no faith. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith into action and to bring diverse groups of people together to build homes and community.

Churches, temples, mosques and coalitions of diverse faith groups partner to provide support to Habitat for Humanity’s local and global mission each year by contributing volunteers and financial resources.
