Hand Up, Not A Hand Out

0% mortgage for qualifying families

At Habitat for Humanity, we not only offer safe, affordable homes; we offer hope. By facilitating homeownership, families can break the cycle of poverty, which goes a long way to building a better future for multiple generations. At the same time, building homes for families in need strengthens community bonds while improving the communities in which we work and live. By coordinating and working with dedicated volunteers and community partner corporate sponsors, families are able

to move into houses they help build themselves—allowing them to truly

have a place they can call home.

 

Mission:  Seeking to put God’s love into action, Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
