About Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity, Inc (FAHFH), a Christian organization, was founded in 1988 with the mission to build safe, affordable energy-efficient homes in Cumberland County. In 2016, parts many areas where Habitat Homes were built experienced major flooded during Hurricane Matthew. Our Critical Home Repair Program began as a response to Hurricane Matthew and has continued making homes safe and secure since then. The Veteran Repairs Program was initiated in support of those who have served our country, with FAHFH becoming an authorized Veteran Build Affiliate in in 2018.
In 2019, FAHFH expanded our reach beyond Cumberland county into our neighboring counties, Bladen and Sampson. Through our three programs (Homeownership, Critical Home Repairs, Veteran Repairs), and three counties (Bladen, Cumberland, Sampson) hundreds of individuals and families have been blessed with affordable housing opportunities and vital disaster-relief home repairs.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. A safe, decent place to live is the cornerstone of a strong community. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Because of the help of people like you, whole neighborhoods improve and completely transform. Through transformation, families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life. When communities work together to address the urgent need for adequate, affordable housing, we all become vulnerable and more resilient. This builds on community existing assets: financial, physical, natural, human, social and spiritual.
Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. 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.
