WE ARE A CHRISTIAN HOUSING MINISTRY
Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 and has been devoted to building "simple, decent, and affordable" housing." The organization is a self-described "Christian housing ministry," and has addressed the issues of poverty housing all over the world. Thanks in no small part to the personal involvement of U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn and the awareness they have raised, Habitat now works in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries and has helped 9.8 million people achieve strength, stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter.
Mountain Spirit is true to Habitat's founding principles, and is committed to the belief that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in
dignity and safety.
Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity provides a home-ownership program that empowers families to build a new life for themselves through the stability and security of owning their own home. Habitat homes are not given away but are sold to families who qualify and are willing to make a down payment, put in hundreds of hours of sweat equity labor, and are willing to make a monthly mortgage payment. Habitat homes are affordable because Habitat does not make a profit, the homes are sold with a no-interest loan, and the homes are built by volunteers.
It's a program that works!
"Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope."
Through the generosity of steadfast donors, the faithfulness of our neighbors who support our ReStore and Shop On Bent retail facilities, as well as the volunteer efforts of individuals, churches, businesses and organizations, Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity
is committed to eliminating substandard
and poverty housing in Park County.
