Habitat for Humanity Hamilton County

Habitat for Humanity Hamilton County is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that is dedicated to working in partnership with low-income families in Hamilton County under the conviction that every person should have a safe, decent, and affordable place to live in safety and dignity. Habitat homeowners pay interest-free, zero-profit mortgages, which are used to build more Habitat houses. Because houses are principally built with volunteer labor, mortgage payments are affordable for low-income partners.
