Lending a Hand Up, Not a Hand Out!
The primary goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate insufficient housing and homelessness in St. Louis. We do this by partnering with families and individuals to build decent, affordable homes. By providing each individual with the solid foundation of homeownership, we create the opportunity of prosperity for generations to come.
Habitat is not a giveaway program. Habitat houses are sold to eligible partner families at no profit with affordable and supportive financing on a 0% interest loan. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and occasionally rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the designated homeowner families.
