About Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity

Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization based on Christian principles that strives to eliminate substandard housing locally and worldwide by building, rehabilitating, and preserving homes. Habitat also advocates for fair and just housing policies. Habitat for Humanity believes that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All Are Welcome

Kalamazoo Valley 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 homeowners, volunteers, supporters, and staff from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race, color, national origin, ethnic or religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or familial status, height, weight, disability, veteran status, or any other class protected by law, in accordance with all federal and state laws.

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity 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.

People partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower.
