ABOUT OUR HOMES
Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), and the MidOhio Affiliate (serving Franklin, Licking, and Madison counties), is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry. Habitat affiliates work locally in communities around the world to select and support homeowners, organize volunteers, and coordinate house building. Since its founding in 1976, Habitat has built more than 700,000 homes worldwide, providing shelter for more than 1 million people in nearly 90 countries. In the central Ohio community, Habitat has served more than 400 families since 1987.
Every partner family must perform a minimum of 200-250 hours of sweat equity, which includes working on their own house and those of other Habitat families, attending homeownership classes, and providing Habitat program support. Every family also assumes a no-interest, no-profit mortgage with payments based on family income. Because HFHMO holds and services these mortgages, Habitat has a long-term relationship with the homeowners and the communities in which they live.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

About Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio
Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio 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 for Humanity-MidOhio 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 shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, 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.
