Open Doors

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat does not impose any condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to any particular faith.
