Our Strategic Plan
Habitat for Humanity’s 2014-18 strategic plan builds squarely on the organization’s mission, vision and principles. The plan will come to life as our community unites to address the urgent need for adequate, affordable shelter.
OUR MOTIVATION: Putting God’s love into action
Motivated by the belief that each of us is called to “act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God,” Habitat for Humanity seeks to be a partner and catalyst in building communities where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
OUR METHOD: Bringing people together
Habitat for Humanity believes that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. When the broad community is engaged in addressing the urgent need for adequate, affordable shelter, we all become less vulnerable and more resilient. In bringing people together, Habitat practices a philosophy of “a hand up, not a handout,” and builds on existing community assets: financial, physical, natural, human, social and spiritual.
OUR IMPACT: Homes, communities and hope
In seeking truly transformed communities, Habitat views bringing people together not only as a way to deliver a product—improved housing—but as an essential process for building hope and belief that healthier communities are achievable and beneficial for all. When we work together, statistics become faces with names, stereotypes are broken and everyone has the opportunity both to give and receive. Only then is lasting change likely to occur.
