WELCOME TO R.I.T. CHAPTER FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY


Habitat For Humanity Mission Statement:
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating houses so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which every person can experience God’s love and can live and grow into all that God intends.


What is Habitat For Humanity?

  • A nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry.
  • We seek to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
  • To accomplish these goals, we invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
  • Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller, along with his wife, Linda.
  • Today, we have built over 350,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.75 million people in 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.
