The work of Habitat for
Humanity is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to the love of
God through the work of eliminating poverty housing.† Highland Rim Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and
people from all walks of life to develop communities for people in need.† By
building decent houses and renovating deficient houses, HRHFH helps to
create decent communities in which every person can experience God's love and
can live and grow into all that God intends.
Our values and principles
Highland Rim Habitat for
Humanity plays an active role in the development and construction of
affordable housing units. We collaborate with many other housing providers
and community-based agencies. Nevertheless, our core programs are distinct
from many of the other agencies:
hand in hand with people in need produces a sense of empowerment and
accomplishment. This provides an environment for positive life changes.
- We believe
homeownership produces more responsible and active citizens, which
improves communities and cities.
people act in response to human need, giving without seeking profit or
interest, we believe the effects are multiplied by God. The miraculous
happens when we step out in faith. We do not charge interest or make a
profit on Habitat homes.
believe in bridging theological differences, using the hammer as an
instrument to manifest Godís love.
acknowledge the community building power of partnering with donors,
volunteers, faith-based communities, businesses, organizations and
believe in the importance of our volunteer ministry. Our goal is for
each of these volunteers to come to a deeper understanding of the need
for affordable housing and the situations faced by low-income families
living in Coffee and Franklin Counties.
