Who We Are
About Habitat for Humanity Van Buren County
Habitat for Humanity Van Buren County is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat seeks to improve the quality of life of its partners, volunteers, and the entire community and to inspire everyone to live with a spirit of compassion. Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their housing conditions.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, affordable, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
All are Welcome
Habitat for Humanity Van Buren County 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 partner families, volunteers, supporters, and staff from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race, color, national origin, ethnic or religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or familial status, height, weight, disability, veteran status, or any other class protected by law, in accordance with all federal and state laws.
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.

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 800,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.
