Mission and Vision

Watauga County Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, non-profit housing ministry that seeks to provide decent, affordable housing to low-income Watauga County residents. We do this by building modest homes with volunteer labor, land and materials that are donated or purchased at reduced cost. Homeowners help build their own home alongside volunteers.  Habitat offers zero interest mortgages to the home owners and homes are sold at no profit. 

OUR MISSION

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Watauga County Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

VISION

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

 

Every day, more and more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads.

Caught in punishing cycles of unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded conditions, or lack of access to land and affordable financing, these families live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear.

Habitat for Humanity knows that safe, decent and affordable shelter plays an absolutely critical role in helping families to create a new cycle, one filled with possibilities and progress. Affordable homeownership frees families and fosters the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes can be long-lasting and life-changing.
