What We do
Helping families break free from the cycle of poverty
Working to eliminate substandard housing in Jefferson County.
Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Habitat’s construction process combines the ordinary act of building a home with the extraordinary possibilities of human love. This constructive combination renews lives and opens doors for Habitat families and volunteers alike. The construction of simple, decent, healthy Habitat homes testifies to the abilities and determination of The Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity.
