Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. We build with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.


Smiles Abound as Construction Gets Underwat

Our crew of “Regulars” is already on the job and we have had our first Saturday construction crew.  The main beam and floor joists are all in, and the sub floor is completely installed.  Drive past the construction site at 227 Cropsey any time to watch our progress.  We are at the far west end of Third Street in Dixon.

If your church, club or business would like to sponsor a crew of 6 to 8 volunteers to work on one Saturday this summer call Jim Dixon for the details.  Individuals are welcome, too.  Call 288-2501 or email  jedixon57@comcast.net

Does Habitat give houses away?
No, but this is a common misconception. Habitat is not a giveaway program. We offer a "hand up" not a "handout." Obtaining a Habitat home is a joint venture between the community, sponsors and Habitat partner families who become homeowners. Our partner families purchase their homes with no interest, no profit mortgages from Habitat. Mortgage payments are then put into a revolving fund to build more houses.
