Our program promotes building strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership. Our mission is to reduce poverty and create affordable housing opportunities by putting God’s love into action to build affordable homes, communities, and hope. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent shelter. Every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future, and decent shelter is something we all need to thrive.
