Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Boone County brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
our vision and values
Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We work towards this vision, being Christ’s Hands and Feet, by building and improving homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of decent and affordable homes. We have chosen to create opportunities for people to have sustainable housing by partnering with volunteers, donors, and corporations to break the cycle of poverty.
Since 1984, Habitat for Humanity of Boone County has been offering a hand up not a hand out enabling our partner families to achieve pride in home ownership working side by side with volunteers to build houses. We have built 70 homes helped over 200 hard working adults and children with their dream of housing stability.
Habitat for Humanity of Boone County is led by a volunteer Board of Directors that makes strategic and
long-term decisions for our affiliate in order to realize our vision of a Boone County without substandard housing.
In addition to our Board of Directors, our Family Services Committee also plays an important role. The Family Services Committee is comprised of the Family Selection Committee and the Family Nurturing Committee. The Family Selection Committee is responsible for new applicant orientation meetings, reviewing applications, and selected a family to be presented to the Board of Directors for final approval for partnership. The Family Nurturing Committee is responsible for helping partner families through the home ownership process, addressing any questions, and making sure these families meet all partnership requirements, including sweat equity hours.
