Habitat is a partnership founded on common ground, bridging theological differences by putting love into action. Everyone can use the hammer as an instrument to manifest Gods love. Habitat founder Millard Fuller called this concept “The Theology of the Hammer,” explaining, “We may disagree on all sorts of others things, but we can all agree on the idea of building homes with Gods people in need.” Habitat for Humanity welcomes all people to build in partnership. Habitat is about tearing down walls and building bridges. It is about bringing hope and transforming lives.
Faith groups are invited to build with us on our construction sites.
