Our Mission Statement

About Montgomery County Habitat for Humanity
Montgomery County Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, non-profit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God's love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Montgomery County 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.
All are Welcome
Montgomery 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 housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity Internationals 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 messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
About Habitat for Humanity International
Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million worldwide.
- Began as a volunteer only operation in 1989.
- Closed on first home in December 1990.
- Hired first staff member in 2001.
- Opened the ReStore, a home improvement resale shop, on July 15, 2005.
- Dedicated the 50th home in 2008.
- Began construction on the first 6 homes in Cedar Creek, Montgomery County’s Habitat-only neighborhood, in 2009.
- Closed on a record-breaking 10 homes in 2009.
- Streets were poured in Section II of Cedar Creek during 2011, and construction began on these lots in 2012.
Since opening the initial phase of the 37-acre Cedar Creek neighborhood to development in 2009, 29 homes have been dedicated or are currently under construction. The Phase 2 streets, drainage, and other infrastructure were completed in 2011. This Habitat home neighborhood will eventually accommodate almost 90 single-family homes, green space and a community garden. There are plenty of homes to be built on the available lots in Cedar Creek over the next few years; however, the pace of building the remaining homes is largely dependent on having corporations and other organizations committing to being a home sponsor. In addition to the ongoing construction in Cedar Creek, HFHMC will continue to build homes in other parts of the county.
