About Us

Habitat for Humanity Huron County is a non-profit, non-government, incorporated charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of economically disadvantaged persons through home ownership with the belief that decent, affordable housing is a basic human need. It is its mission to eliminate poverty housing in Huron County in partnership with volunteers, donors, sponsors and the homeowners themselves.

Habitat for Humanity Huron County is a local Affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada, which is the national organization of Habitat for Humanity International.

With help and support from people of the community, Habitat for Humanity Huron County has successfully completed its fourth build. Since our start in Huron County, our track record has been one home built each year – and we have the next two years mapped out, with builds planned for Exeter in 2009 and Huron East in 2010.

Once we build nine houses, the money from those nine mortgages ‘seeds’ the tenth build: Habitat becomes self funding and then we can really gain momentum. Consider this your invitation to please lend a hand!
