Vision Statement

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Mission Statement

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together
to build homes, communities and hope.

About Spencer County Habitat for Humanity

Spencer County 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.  Spencer County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to elimninating 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.

All are welcome

Spencer County Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy:  All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.  In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent houseing regardless of race or religion.  As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize.  This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messagin designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.



HabiFacts:

  • Houses are not given away.
    The prospective Habitat homeowner is required to contribute a monetary downpayment in addition to hundreds of hours of "sweat equity" in their home or another Habitat home. Home mortgage payments are kept low due to volunteer labor and donations of material and land.
  • Habitat houses vs. neighborhood property values.
    Studies conclude there is no adverse effect of property values when affordable homes are built in neighborhoods. In fact, the opposite usually happens...property values actually increase.

Spencer Christian Church Partners with Habitat

 

The Spencer Christian Church Day of Service event was held Sunday, Sept. 21st. At this event the walls were built for the Tindle Ridge Habitat home. A lot of hard work went into this project. Our thanks and appreciation to Spencer Christian Church and their Pastor, Doug Martin, for their willingness to partner with Habitat!
Gina Hedden and her family will purchase the home upon its completion.

SCHFH Is Building Right NOW!

If you or someone you know - or a group from your organization - or business is at all interested in "swinging a hammer"  for Spencer County Habitat please let us know.
We have two families selected - two job sites and two homes to build.
There will be many opportunities to join in the excitement!   The schedule and pace of construction will largely depend on the number of volunteers - so please let us know as soon as possible when you or your group will be interested in participating.
This is a great chance for churches or business groups to work together for a wonderful, local cause.
