About Us

Our mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Our vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our principles

  1. Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
  2. Focus on shelter.
  3. Advocate for affordable housing.
  4. Promote dignity and hope.
  5. Support sustainable and transformative development.

Who we are

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Through our 2020 Strategic Plan, Habitat for Humanity will serve more people than ever before through decent and affordable housing.

Non-proselytizing policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

History

On September 1, 2008, Habitat for Humanity of Benzie County became Habitat for Humanity International’s newest local affiliate. Prior to this time, the Habitat work in Benzie county was as a task force associated with Habitat for Humanity, Grand Traverse Region. Habitat for Humanity of Benzie County joins other Habitat affiliates in Michigan and around the world in seeking to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness and to make decent homes a matter of conscience and action. Selected “partner” families contribute their own “sweat equity”, then purchase the homes with a a no-interest mortgage.

Donate/Volunteer

We want to serve more families by providing simple, decent places to live. It requires over $100,000 for Habitat to build or rehabilitate a home in Benzie County. We already have proven support from our community, volunteers, donors, organizations and places of worship. Our partner families are hard-working, looking to achieve the dream of owning their own homes. Habitat for Humanity of Benzie County can provide many with that dream, but only with the generous support of our donors and volunteers.
