Habitat for Humanity
Give to Habitat for Humanity on Giving Tuesday!
The Habitat for Humanity of Genesee County Fund is to be used to support Habitat for Humanity.
MISSION: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
VISION: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
"It is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need. Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart." -Matthew Desmond
