IN THE NEWS
Habitat for Humanity of Western Wayne County is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization
an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International
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.
Habitat for Humanity has built more than one million houses, affecting change in more than 9.8 million lives in over 80 countries around the world. Habitat is a grassroots, Christian organization founded on common ground. We bridge theological, political, racial and economic differences by putting love into action.
For over two decades, Habitat for Humanity Western Wayne County has devoted efforts advocating to end poverty housing and homelessness throughout the Greater Detroit metropolitan area. Over the years, our efforts have built a sense of purpose and dignity in the lives of people who need a hand up not a hand out.
Habitat is not a give-away program. We partner with people who demonstrate a willingness to invest a minimum of 250 sweat equity volunteer hours, a down payment deposit, attend various financial and budget management classes..Families accepted into our program are required to invest their time, talent & resources in exchange for a mortgage.
Whether you call it random acts of kindness, paying it forward, or good deeds, they are very powerful. That is why almost every religion and culture values and rewards the performance of good deeds. There are many benefits to doing good deeds. Some of these benefits may be very obvious to you, while you may not have considered some of the others. Habitat for Humanity is blessed with good deeds from many volunteers! Together, we're changing lives and making a difference!
A world where everyone has a decent place to live
NATIONAL WOMEN BUILD SPONSORED BY LOWE'S
Friday, May 11, 2018
Lowe’s, a Fortune 50 home improvement company, has a 50-year legacy of supporting the communities it serves through programs that focus on K-12 public education and community improvement projects. Since 2007, Lowe’s and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation together have contributed more than $250 million to these efforts, and for more than two decades Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers have donated their time to make our communities better places to live.
Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s. The program invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.
National Women Build Week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day with Lowe’s generously donating nearly $2 million dollars and volunteer support. Hosting the event during this week reinforces the message that every woman can make a difference through learning and using construction skills. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.
In addition to the financial and volunteer support, local Habitat organizations and Lowe’s offer how-to clinics to help prepare volunteers for the build site.
