​​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!

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize.

Habitat for Humanity has built more than one million houses, affecting change in more than 22 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.

We CHALLENGE YOU to invest your funds back into the community where you work and live!  We challenge you to care! We challenge you to pledge to donate to help others who are either homeless or live in substandard housing!  PLEASE ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE!  DONATE TODAY!!
