Our Mission

Our Mission

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami is a Christian ministry that transforms lives and
communities by providing low-income families with affordable homeownership
opportunities.

Our Vision

We build and renovate decent homes, which families purchase at cost and with a 0% interest loan.

We engage people of conscience within our community by providing volunteer and financial
support opportunities to accomplish the building of homes and communities in partnership
with low-income families.

Our Principles

  • We follow Biblical teachings in our attitudes and actions.
  • We build bridges among all economic and ethnic segments of our community by
    establishing new relationships, a sense of community, and a renewed commitment
    to “the common good.”

  • We welcome participation from all individuals, groups, or organizations who desire
    to join with Miami Habitat and who share our concern and compassion for those in
    need.

  • We are a financially responsible non-profit ministry that raises money from those
    who share our vision and to spend the money raised with integrity, community
    accountability, and for the specific purpose intended by the donors.

  • We select families for home ownership based on their need, willingness to be a full
    partner in the Habitat program, and ability to repay the interest-free loan in support
    of the Habitat ministry. Selection is made without consideration of race, sex, color,
    creed, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation or any other legally protected
    status.

  • We, as a Habitat for Humanity International affiliate, do not proselytize, which 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.
  • We maintain a mutually beneficial, nurturing friendship with each family through ongoing
    contact and by providing instruction in the areas of budgeting, financial planning, home
    maintenance, and other practicalities of homeownership.

  • We support the work of Habitat ministries in other communities, as our resources allow, by
    contributing a tithe (10%) of undesignated financial contributions.
