Habitat for Humanity
Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide, and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action.
Habitat for Humanity uses volunteer labor, partner family sweat equity, and tax-deductible donations to build and renovate simple, decent, affordable homes.
Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable, no-interest loans. Monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving fund that’s used to help build even more Habitat homes for other families in need regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.
Although we’ve built more than 300,000 houses around the world, far too many Michigan families remain trapped in a daily struggle for shelter. The good news is that you CAN make a difference by hosting or attending a World’s Biggest House Party event.
