Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County, Inc. is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operating on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
We create opportunities for all people to live in decent, affordable, durable, energy efficient homes. We put faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.
We support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. In all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable.
We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live.
We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social and economic change within a community.
