  • Title: Mission Statement
    Descriptive info: United in Mission.. Our Vision.. A world in which everyone has a decent place to live.. Our Mission.. Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity-La Crosse Area brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.. We believe that decent, affordable housing should be a matter of conscience and action; we realize that there are people in our community who are living in inadequate conditions and that joining together we can provide a hand up - not a hand out.. For many of us it will be an eye-opening experience to see what homes and conditions are like for many of the poor.. We believe that many stereotypes will be dispelled as people of different economic, ethnic, or religious backgrounds work together.. We all share a common humanity, with similar frailties, strengths and aspirations.. Our Mission Principles.. 1.. Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.. We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus, acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God s love and grace abound for all, and that we must be hands and feet of that love and grace in our world.. We believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be multiplied to accomplish the  ...   of poverty.. 3.. Advocate for affordable housing.. In response to the prophet Micah s call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and 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.. And, 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.. 4.. Promote dignity and hope.. 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 believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.. 5.. Support sustainable and transformational development.. We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us..

  • Title: FAQs
    Descriptive info: What is Habitat for Humanity-La Crosse Area?.. We may disagree on all sorts of things.. But thank God, we can agree on a nail and the use of a hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love.. Millard Fuller, Founder of Habitat for Humanity.. Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to the elimination of homelessness and poverty housing from the world.. Founded on the belief that all people deserve a decent and affordable place to live in dignity and safety, Habitat pursues its vision to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action.. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry that works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate homes, which are then sold to Habitat's partner families at no profit and with no interest charged.. Partner families invest 350 hours of their own sweat equity into construction of their homes and the homes of others.. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity which is used to fund the construction of more houses in the La Crosse community.. Habitat for Humanity also has a home repair program called A Brush With Kindness program serving low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes.. The program is a holistic approach to providing affordable housing and assisting communities as well as families.. A Brush with Kindness ensures that families live in safe and well-maintained homes.. The program is designed to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community, and most importantly, help preserve affordable housing stock.. Founded locally in 1992, Habitat for Humanity-La Crosse Area is an independently run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.. Each year we build 3-5 Habitat homes in the La Crosse area, and to date we have built or rehabbed over 30 homes, providing decent shelter for over 200 people.. Why houses?.. The American Dream of safe, affordable, decent housing is out of reach of thousands in the La Crosse area.. The people that Habitat for Humanity serves are individuals and families who are currently living in substandard housing: unsafe, unsound, overcrowded, or too expensive, and they are not able to qualify for a conventional mortgage.. They earn 30-60% of the county median income as established by HUD.. They are the working poor.. By providing a family with  ...   Crosse Area Fair Housing Partnership and the La Crosse County Housing Commission.. Race, marital status, family size, and religion are not factors in choosing the families with which we partner.. What does a Habitat house cost?.. The zero-interest mortgages assumed by Habitat homeowners are approximately $90,000, reflecting purchase of the land, development, and construction costs.. The average monthly expense is about $500, which includes the mortgage payment, property taxes, and insurance.. The mortgage is paid to Habitat for Humanity and is used to building more Habitat homes here in the La Crosse area.. Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area builds single-family homes.. We obtain vacant housing or vacant lots and are able to keep the home cost affordable through extensive volunteer labor, in-kind donations, and pro-bono services.. What exactly does it mean that Habitat is a Christian organization?.. As a Christian ministry, Habitat for Humanity puts into practice the teachings of Jesus.. He taught his followers by word and example to meet the needs of those who lacked the most basic necessities of human life: food and drink, clothing, shelter, companionship.. He also taught and modeled a vision of community based on inclusion, mutual respect, and compassion for one s fellow human beings.. Reaching out to those who were marginalized, He called forth their inherent goodness, dignity, and human potential.. Habitat for Humanity strives to do the same as it partners with people in need of decent housing.. I want to volunteer with Habitat but am not a Christian.. Will I still be welcomed?.. Yes! You don t have to be a Christian to be involved with Habitat for Humanity.. Habitat is an inclusive, non-proselytizing, non-doctrinal organization.. We welcome and encourage the participation of all people regardless of their belief systems who identify with our mission and want to partner with us.. Our aim is not to convert non-Christians or advance specific doctrines, but to build decent homes in partnership with people who need them.. Must a potential Habitat homeowner be Christian?.. No.. Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of faith, or on any other basis, in the selection of partner families.. Habitat for Humanity envisions a world with no shacks, where every human being has at least a simple, decent place to live.. This includes not just Christians, but all humanity..
