Mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Habitat’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward this vision by building and improving homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of a decent and affordable place to live. Habitat serves households that fall within 25-80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). Family selection is based on financial ability to pay zero-interest loan payments, willingness to partner in the building of the home, meeting residential requirements, and their need for housing. Homeownership helps families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.

Affordable Housing

Habitat for Humanity Idaho Falls Area (HFHIFA) builds and repairs simple, decent, affordable homes for low-income families living in east Idaho. HFHIFA has been serving the affordable housing needs of families in Idaho Falls, Rexburg, and Ashton, Idaho since 1994.

Habitat families are carefully screened. Family selection is based on financial readiness to pay a zero-interest loan payment, willingness to partner in the building of the home, and their need for housing.

In 2022, HFHIFA purchased a twelve-acre parcel of ground in Idaho Falls and is in the beginning stages of building its first affordable housing Community of Hope. This community will include tiny homes, attached homes, and traditional Habitat single family homes. With the assistance of local donors and volunteers, HFHIFA's goal is to increase its capacity from its current four families per year to a minimum of ten families each year.
