“A world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
Our parent organization, Habitat For Humanity, was founded in 1976 as a Christ centered, non-profit ministry work to help end the vicious cycle of poverty in our cities and towns.
Habitat For Humanity of Greater Jonesboro (HFHOGJ) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on June 24, 1992.
Since then, we have worked to complete a minimum of one home a year. So far we have built 16 homes and are currently building on home 17 and 18.
Giving “A Hand Up” not “A Hand Out”
Our homeowners do in fact buy their homes, but HFHOGJ offers the homes we build for a zero percent interest rate, making these homes affordable to persons and/or families who have lower than normal incomes.
These homeowners then make monthly payments to HFHOGJ instead of making payments to a bank.
