      OUR MISSION
      Summit Habitat for Humanity is an independent local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. We bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.

      OUR METHOD
      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
      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.
