We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. When a family helps build or improve a place they can call home, they are also building a better community, a better life for themselves.
We build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
BUILDING HOPE BY BUILDING HOMES
Habitat for Humanity is a Christian ministry dedicated to a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We conduct our programs in ways that are sensitive and respectful to the cultural context and the local faith community and reflect our belief that all are created in God’s image and deserve to be treated without discrimination.
Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Recognizing that stable and affordable housing directly impacts health, safety, education and community engagement, Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity will seek out low wealth families who desire the responsibility of home ownership and wish to dedicate themselves to neighborhood uplift while breaking the cycle of generational poverty. We will provide affordable housing solutions in areas where our community partners support our vision by answering other needs such as community safety, availability of food and services, transportation and recreation.
Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity strives to be at the center of both urban community revitalization and rural community stabilization in Cumberland, Sampson, and Bladen counties. We will intentionally build small clusters of homes while creating strategic revitalization and repairs in both rural and urban settings. We will engage area churches and religious institutions, employers, school systems and other non-profit organizations in realizing these goals. When done well, our collaborations with area municipalities, county governments and other key partners will lead to substantive change in the loves of people and communities
