Missions and Values
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Our Mission Statement
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, build hope, and build community.
All are welcome
Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This 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.
Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) is part of an international, nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization that works to provide simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with low-income families. Our primary goal is to eliminate substandard housing and homelessness by partnering with community members to foster community as they work side by side with our partner families constructing simple, decent and affordable Habitat homes.
