Habitat for Humanity works to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness by making decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
What do we do?
Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a world wide Christian ministry that serves everyone. Our mission is to
build simple, decent, affordable houses for God’s people in need. Our goal is to eliminate poverty housing from the face of the earth.
Founded in 1976, HFHI has built over 300,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.5 million people in 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.
To accomplish these goals, we invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
Hardin County Habitat for Humanity (HCHFH) is your local affiliate of HFHI. We have the same mission, but our goal is to eliminate poverty housing in Hardin County, KY. HCHFH was founded in 1992 as a ministry of the Hardin County Ministerial Association. We attempt to build 4 houses each year. We estimate there are over 1000 families in the County that could qualify for a home. More…
Why so few houses with so great a need?
It is only the lack of funding and volunteers for HCHFH that holds us back.
