Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity makes home ownership possible for motivated families for whom ownership is not otherwise attainable. Inspired by the values of its Christian founders, Habitat seeks to improve the quality of life of its partners, volunteers, and the entire community and to inspire everyone to live with a spirit of compassion.
In pursuing its mission, KVHH is guided by the following principles and values:
- Habitat is an ecumenical, non-profit organization that makes home ownership possible through a combination of non-interest loans, the sweat equity of buyers, in-kind donations, the time and talent of volunteers, and the goodwill of the community.
- Habitat expresses the faith and values that are part of the Christian and other traditions and central to the motivation of many of its supporters. Applying the challenge to love God and love our neighbor, Habitat provides a vehicle whereby all people of goodwill can work together to discover their common bond.
- Habitat is inclusive in terms of the population it serves and welcomes the active participation of all people.
- Habitat believes that its work goes beyond building houses to transform lives and strengthen the fabric of the community.
