Welcome To Habitat For Humanity, Cape Area
Habitat for Humanity was originally founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. The involvement of former U.S President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn in 1984 brought the organization into the nation’s eye and generated interest of many others in the work of Habitat for humanity across the nation. From that time onwards a lot of supporters and helping hands came forward to take forward the vision of the organization across the nation. As a result today Habitat for Humanity across the nation and around the globe helps in gaining dignity and security and hopes for thousands of low income families in the form of affordable homes. Churches, community groups and others join hands in resolving a significant social problem i.e. decent housing for all.
Mission Statement of Habitat for Humanity: “A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
