About

Our Purpose

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.

Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

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.

History & Mission

Who We Are

In 1994, a small group of dedicated volunteers established Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns in an effort to create homeownership opportunities for families with limited income. Their goal was to partner with homeowners, volunteers and community organizations to build sustainable, affordable homes in northeastern Wyoming’s Sheridan County. Twenty years and thousands of volunteers later, Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns has completed 36 homes in partnership with local communities and has opened a ReStore warehouse.

Who We Serve

Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns addresses the critical need for affordable housing by providing home ownership opportunities for Sheridan families in need. We serve families whose income is 30 percent – 60 percent of the current median income, as defined by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for Wyoming.
