Mission:

 

Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit, interfaith ministry, works in partnership with people in need to improve their poor living conditions. Habitat challenges people of compassion to provide initial capital, through gifts and low interest loans, to build or renovate simple, decent homes for the inadequately sheltered.

Construction is a cooperative venture between volunteers and homebuyers. Habitat partner families contribute 500 hours of “sweat equity” towards the building of their home as well as the homes of others.

Habitat houses are sold for no profit, with a non-interest mortgage, repaid over a 30 to 45 year period. House payments are recycled to build more homes for those in need.


Target demographics: hard working families buy a safe, affordable place to live.
Direct beneficiaries per year: over 85 families by connecting them with over 10,000 volunteers
Geographic areas served: Riverside, Moreno Valley, Corona and Jurupa Valley
Programs: Home Ownership, Critical Home Repair and Minor Exterior Repair
