MISSION  

Seeking to put God’s love into action,

Habitat for Humanity-Spokane brings people together to

build homes, communities and hope. 

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. Every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future, and decent shelter is something we all need to thrive.

Habitat-Spokane homeowners receive financial education, help build their houses and pay and affordable mortgage. When they partner with us, they start down a new path — one with far fewer barriers to a better, healthier, more financially stable life.

Habitat-Spokane builds for everyone– every child, every parent, every person deserves to feel strength, stability and self-reliance. We build houses or housing solutions; specifically, the construction of new single and multifamily houses, as well as the rehabilitation, repair, and incremental building of existing homes.

Habitat for Humanity participates in disaster recovery tool-kits’ and shelters, weatherization efforts, water and sanitation projects, housing micro finance systems, and the maintenance of schools and community buildings.

Habitat-Spokane also builds in the mind and spirit of the community: relationships, families, good health, tolerance for different faiths and ethnicities, training in construction skills, training in financial and legal literacy, and advocates to speak for a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

At Habitat for Humanity-Spokane we work alongside those who need an affordable place to call home to build not only houses, but also a universal sense of human dignity. Habitat for Humanity-Spokane, through the grace of God, is building a different community, one family at a time. 

ALL ARE WELCOME:

Habitat for Humanity-Spokane 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 Affiliates 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. Habitat for Humanity-Spokane will not work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat for Humanity-Spokane.
