Per the Great Ends of the Church, as set forth in our Book of Order, we believe in and practice the promotion of social righteousness. One way is through our involvement in Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity has built in excess of 300,000 quality affordable homes and over 1.5 million people served around the world. All Habitat for Humanity affiliates build on the belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live at a price they can afford. Habitat for Humanity volunteers, working hand in hand with the families they serve, build quality, affordable homes using donations of money and materials. Partner families, as our homebuyers are known, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity in the construction of their homes, then buy their houses, making monthly payments on an interest-free mortgage. Their house payments revolve back into Habitat’s work.
We participate in Habitat for Humanity through Fort Worth Area Habitat or Trinity Habitat for Humanity in order to be more inclusive of the four counties we serve. In our area, involvement has grown from a handful of dedicated founders into a volunteer corps of thousands and today ranks among the top 20 U.S. Habitat affiliates in home production.
