Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International which is headquartered in Americus, Georgia. Habitat for Humanity provides technical assistance, but each affiliate operates independently raising its own funds, finding its own sites and selecting its own families. Each affiliate tithes to Habitat for Humanity to assist in building efforts worldwide.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates houses in partnership with those in need.
Habitat houses are affordable because there is no profit included in the sale price and no interest is charged on the mortgage. The family’s monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving fund which is used to build more houses.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFHI work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFHI. This means that HFHI will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must (i) adhere or convert to a part faith or (ii) listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
