Organization Overview

Habitat Mission:

Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley works to enrich Washtenaw County through a legacy of affordable homeownership for low-income families.

Habitat Vision:

Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley is a source of hope and inspiration for Washtenaw  County, the State of Michigan, and the entire nation.  We are a leader in enabling more citizens to have greater opportunities to improve their lives through home ownership.

Our impact is seen in revitalized neighborhoods, families achieving financial stability, and children who achieve more in school and in life.  Families living in Habitat homes are positive contributors to our community.

We are leaders in the affordable housing business and take the lead in pulling people together – developing partnerships and collaborating with a variety of organizations – to reduce poverty levels and increase the numbers of families who own homes.  Through affiliations with state and local government, we pursue political action to benefit affordable housing efforts.

We are financially stable and self-sustaining, making it possible for every contribution to go directly to providing homes.

All are welcome

Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
