When & Where
Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick County
The Ultimate Goal of Habitat for Humanity is to elimnate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by building simple, decent affordable housing.
Furthermore, all of our words and actions are for the ultimate purpose of putting shelter on the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that poverty housing becomes socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable in our nations and world.
Habitat for Humanity started in the United States in 1976, and today its work reaches around the world. There currently are more than 1,700 affiliates in the United States, and some 550 more international affiliates coordinate Habitat house-building projects in some 3,000 communities around the world. Just as in the United States, Habitat's international work is fueled by local initiative. Habitat does not arrive uninvited into an area and announce that it is "going to build houses for poor people." HFHI joins forces with local citizens as a partner in their quest to build decent, affordable houses with local families in need. Successful partnerships with the local committees coordinating the building projects, with local and national governments, with other nongovernmental organizations, and with business and industry in the areas served are crucial to the development process.
Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Churches, community groups and others have joined together to successfully tackle a significant social problem – decent housing for all.
Today, Habitat for Humanity has built more than 300,000 houses, sheltering more than 1.5 million people in more than 3,000 communities worldwide.
