Habitat International

Houston County Habitat is affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), the parent organization of all affiliates worldwide

Just like our affiliate, HFHI is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

The organization has been building simple, decent, and affordable housing since 1976 when it was founded by Millard and Linda Fuller. Since then 300,000 homes have been built, providing shelter for over 1,000,000 people worldwide.

HFHI acts as a support and resource for affiliates worldwide of which Houston County Habitat is one. The affiliates are in covenant with HFHI to build simple, decent, affordable houses in keeping with the foundational Christian principles of the organization. As far as day to day operations go each affiliate has complete control over its operations from resource development to site selection to family services to homebuilding.

The relationship between our affiliate and Habitat International has many benefits. HFHI provides our affiliate with numerous instances of support and training. HFHI has an ongoing conference call training program that allows for Habitat affiliates to gain more knowledge about how to better serve the community they are operating in. Topics range from resource development to family services. In addition, HFHI has worked hard to secure many donations of in-kind materials from corporations like Whirlpool, Yale, and Valspar, etc. for every home built throughout the country.
