To create decent housing to unleash potential
In clean, decent, stable housing, families can provide stability for their children; a family’s sense of dignity and pride grow; health, physical safety, and security improve; and educational and job prospects increase.
To create a community with healthy, safe, and affordable housing for all.
For a large portion of low-income families, homeownership is out of reach. However, Habitat’s unique homeownership model provides a solution to this problem by offering low-income families the opportunity to purchase their own simple, decent, affordable home. Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns’ no-interest loans make purchasing a home possible for community members whose income falls at or between 30 and 60 percent of the state’s median income. Our goal is to put adequate housing issues on the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that poverty housing and homelessness become socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable.
To eliminate poverty housing from Sheridan County and make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
In a spirit of collaboration and fellowship, Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns works with individuals, institutions, businesses, and the Habitat families themselves to build simple, decent, affordable housing for those living in substandard conditions in our community.
