Founded in 1994, Habitat for Humanity Whitley County, a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is Whitley County's only non-denominational, Christian-principled housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in Whitley County. Working in partnership with local churches, businesses, individuals and other non-profit organizations to plan, staff and fund the renovation and building of Habitat homes we have and will continue to serve those in our community in need of simple, safe, affordable housing. By reaching out to our community in this mission we hope that others will see our faith in action and in turn experience God's love and presence in their lives.
Habitat for Humanity of Whitley County works in partnership with God and people from all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating houses so that there are decent houses in Whitley County in which every person can experience God’s love and can live and grow into all that God intends.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations (HFH) will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must (i) adhere to or convert to a particular faith or (ii) listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
The ultimate goal of Habitat for Humanity Whitley County is to eliminate unaffordable and/or substandard housing from Whitley County by building and renovating decent and basic housing. Furthermore, all of our words and actions are for the ultimate purpose of putting shelter on the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that substandard housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable in our county and world.
Habitat for Humanity of Whitley County does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, handicap, religion, marital status, or because any portion of an applicant's income is derived from public assistance programs.
