Our Mission Statement
“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
Who we are
We are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build simple, decent, affordable housing for people in our community who are economically challenged. Funding for the agency comes primarily from local individuals, churches, the business community, and the United Way.
What we do
Habitat in the Freeborn/Mower county areas use as much donated material and volunteer labor as possible. The homes we build are sold at no profit and not interest to families who would otherwise not be able to afford home ownership.
Habitat’s Family Selection Committee, made up of volunteers, selects each homeowner based on the greatest need, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. Once a home is sold, the monthly payments made by the homeowners are “recycled” by Habitat to build additional houses.
