About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Owensboro-Daviess County became an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International in 1988 to increase access to affordable housing, promote self-determination and break the cycle of poverty in the region. Under the Habitat model, homeowners help build their houses alongside volunteers, put in hours of “sweat equity” on various Habitat projects and attend educational sessions on homeownership and budgeting. In turn, they are offered an affordable mortgage and a home of their own.
As of January 2017, Habitat Owensboro has built 127 homes, with several others in various stages of development. Follow news from the nonprofit at www.facebook.com/HabitatOwensboro.
The local chapter is a member of Habitat for Humanity International, which was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller after witnessing extreme poverty in Americus, Georgia. Their first project was in Zaire. Habitat now operates in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and in more than 70 countries. Learn more at habitat.org.
