Habitat's Mission

Our Mission


Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

 

Our Vision


A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

All Are Welcome


Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, 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.

All Are Welcome at Habitat
