Mission Statement:

The mission of Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley, Inc. is to improve the lives of God's families in need by providing affordable, quality homes in partnership with homeowners and volunteers for the enhancement of our community.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Habitat is not a "give-away" program. Partner families invest hundreds of hours of labor-"sweat equity"-into building their home and the homes of other Habitat families. Each family must repay the construction costs over a fixed period of time, usually 20 years. Through home ownership, families gain self-esteem and hope for the future. Lives are changed as the devastating cycle of poverty is broken.
