Building Houses, Building Hope, and Changing Lives

 Mission principles:

  • Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
    We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus,  acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God’s love and grace  abound for all, and that we must be “hands and feet” of that love and  grace in our world. We believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be  multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith,  respectful relationships can grow among all people.
  • Focus on shelter.
    We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God’s love, to create  opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put  faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and  by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable  housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.
  • Advocate for affordable housing.
    In response to the prophet Micah’s call to do justice, to love mercy and  to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all,  and we support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic  human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to  eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in  all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such  powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and  religiously unacceptable.
  • Promote dignity and hope.
    We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in  dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and  something to gain from creating communities in which all people have  decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are  best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.
  • Support sustainable and transformational development.
    We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes  positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a  community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared  accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all  resources entrusted to us.
