This is a blog for my senior project at Basha High in Arizona. I'm going to do volunteer work and write about it here on my blog.

Habitat for Humanity!

What is Habitat for Humanity?

  • It's a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that has helped to build over 500,000 decent, affordable houses and served 2.5 million people worldwide.
  • Their vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
  • Founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife, Linda. 

How are the families selected?

  • Families in need of decent shelter apply to local Habitat affiliates.
  • The affiliate’s family selection committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the loan.
  • Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection.
  • Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing the families who receive Habitat houses.


How does Habitat work with the government?

  • They ask legislators and housing regulators to increase support for affordable homeownership and eliminate poverty housing.
  • They monitor public policies related to housing, community and international development.
  • They advocate policy choices that increase access to decent, affordable housing for people around the world.
  • They accept government funds as long as they have no conditions that would violate Habitat’s principles or limit its ability to proclaim its Christian identity.
