Habitat for Humanity is an organization located in Summerdale, AL 36580.
Habitat for Humanity’s Vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Through the work of Habitat for Humanity of Baldwin County hundreds of people in the area have found hope in the form of safe and affordable housing. In Baldwin County, Habitat is making decent, affordable housing a reality for members of our community. For over twenty years, thousands of volunteers and more than 100 families have partnered to meet housing needs, to create hope, and to provide the foundation for a brighter future. In addition to construction and renovation projects we also operate a ReStore, providing affordable furnishings and building materials from the donations of local businesses and members of the community. The ReStore sells these things at a discounted price helping those with less cash to spend but also helping us all in keeping furniture and building supplies out of our landfills. A common misconception is that Habitat gives free houses away. We only GIVE opportunities. Our partner families go through an intense application process. They work 400 hours of sweat equity. Two hundred of those hours are before we start their home. At the home dedication our partner family receives the key to a simple and safe home with an affordable mortgage. Again, we give opportunities, not free houses. Our partner families are amazing people as are our volunteers and business partners. Our volunteers often say that they get far more from their work on a home than they give. Be a part of Habitat for Humanity Baldwin County! Donate your time, talents, or other resources and become a part of this partnership of hope. We offer the opportunity to grow your group through teamwork as they perform meaningful community service on our home building site as well as at our ReStore. No experience is necessary and all tools and materials are provided.
