Mon County Habitat for Humanity was established in 1990 and is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Mon County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Since 1990 Mon County Habitat for Humanity has completed 42 homes and has provided housing for approximately 180 individuals.
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.
Mon County Habitat for Humanity works through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials. Currently Mon County Habitat for Humanity host approximately 13,000 volunteer hours per year. Those volunteers help our committees and the ReStore, which opened in 2007. The ReStore takes donations of reusable furniture, appliances, residential & commercial fixtures and furnishings and building materials. Then the Restore re-sells these items at thrift store prices using the proceeds to further our mission and help reduce our community’s impact on the environment. For more information please feel free to look around our website or contact us at our office located 251 Don Knotts Blvd Morgantown, WV 26501 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mon County 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 volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also 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 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.
We promise it’s hard and we promise it’s worth it!
