Mission: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Vision Statement: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. "It is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need. Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart." -Matthew Desmond

A full time office manager supports the staff and the affiliate has the added assurance of an outside accounting firm, Taylor and Morgan preparing our monthly statements.
