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:

  • Working 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.
  • When 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.
  • We believe in bridging theological differences, using the hammer as an instrument to manifest Godís love.
  • We acknowledge the community building power of partnering with donors, volunteers, faith-based communities, businesses, organizations and homeowner families.
  • We 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.
