The mission and vision of Habitat for Humanity world wide is the same: A world where everyone has a decent place to live by putting God's love into action that brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Provide everyone with a decent place to live. Revitalize and strengthen neighborhoods all over the county.

We live by five basic principles in implementing our strategy:

1. Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ - we believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith, respectful relationships can grow among all people.

2. Focus on shelter - by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of povery.

3. Advocate for affordable housing - we will advocate for just and fair housing policies to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing.

4. Promote dignity and hope - we believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.

5. Support sustainable and transformational development - we view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.

Habitat for Humanity International and by extension, St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity subscribes to the mission, vision and principles required to carry out our mission to eliminate poverty housing in the world and provide everyone with a decent place to live.

Through our many national and local partnerships and thousands of volunteer labor hours each year we are working our way through St. Lucie County.

We build homes, communities and hope, through partnerships. After 40 years on the national level and 20 years in the local community, we are confident that we are succeeding, but we can always do more.

We know we can do more with more partnerships in the community at all levels. Everyone has the opportunity to volunteer at a home site, in our ReStores or office, donate to our ReStores, shop at our ReStores, advocate for safe affordable housing and share their good fortune with us to move the mission forward.

We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.

When educators report the improvement in students through improved grades and behavior.

When Pastors report the overall improvement in the life of one of their congregant/families.

When safety agencies report a drop in the crime in the area where improvements are made and through elevated self-esteem, the residents take back their neighborhoods.

That is progress.

We have not provided safe and affordable housing for everyone who comes through our doors.

We need the community to help in what ever way they can.
