Building Homes …
Changing Lives ….
OUR MISSION STATEMENT: Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod works in partnership with families in need to build homes, hope, lives and community on Cape Cod.
Habitat for Humanity for Humanity of Cape Cod
Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. We are an ecumenical housing ministry that welcomes people of all faiths and every walk of life to our work – as volunteer, donor, homeowner or advocate.
We seek to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action for all people, and work to provide the opportunity of affordable homeownership to families living in situations of critical housing need, both locally and worldwide, through constructing, advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Partnership is key to our work. Each home is built by community volunteers and the sweat equity of the future owner. We rely on our community for donations of cash, land, materials and professional services.
Founded in 1988 as a recognized affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we have built homes in all fifteen towns on Cape Cod and have dedicated 81 homes to date. Every new home is deed restricted to be affordable, upon any future resale, in perpetuity.
We tithe 10% of unrestricted donations to help build Habitat homes in more impoverished areas throughout the world; currently our tithe funds are directed to Habitat Haiti.
Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization.
All are welcome
Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod 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.
