Habitat for Humanity International
Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian housing ministry founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. The organization is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. The organization was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent place to live in dignity and safety. Habitat welcomes all people – regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or any other difference – to build and repair simple, decent, affordable houses with those who lack adequate shelter.
Habitat affiliates work locally in communities around the world to select and support homeowners, organize volunteers, and coordinate house building and repair.
Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity
Chartered in 1995, the Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity (GFHFH) affiliate serves low-income families in the City of Fredericksburg and the Counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania and King George. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to repay a mortgage and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat.
