Habitat for Humanity-Spokane is an ecumenical nonprofit Christian ministry dedicated to bringing the community together to build decent, affordable housing for all people in need. Habitat-Spokane is an equal housing opportunity provider and serves qualified families from all walks of life regardless of creed.
Habitat homes are built simply and affordably through partnership with community volunteers and donations. All costs to build the homes are transferred to the family. Community support keeps building expenses low, thus reducing the cost to the family.
Habitat is a partnership program offering a hand up rather than a hand out to empower Spokane families. To qualify, eligible families invest 500 hours of their own labor (sweat equity) in building their homes as well as others. Once completed, the homes are sold to partner families at cost with a 0% mortgage held by Habitat-Spokane.
