Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing organization that builds simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with those in need of adequate shelter. Since 1976, Habitat has built more than 90,000 houses in more than 60 countries, including some 30,000 houses across the United States.
Habitat houses are purchased by the homeowner families. Three factors make habitat houses affordable to low-income people worldwide:
Homeowner families are chosen according to their need; their ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest mortgage, and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat.
