Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity’s Mission is based on the vision of developing partnerships between churches, businesses and concerned individuals to assist hardworking, low income people to build and own their own homes. The vision is founded on the Christian belief that sharing one’s material wellbeing multiplies the ministry of love, justice and goodness throughout the world.
We offer a hand up, not a hand out. We do not give away our houses. We are able to keep the houses affordable by offering a zero interest mortgage and, we require our Habitat for Humanity homeowners to invest 250 hours of "sweat equity" per adult in the household to help build their home.
