BUILDING HOPE!

BUILDING HOMES!

 

Welcome to Tres Rios Habitat for Humanity

Tres Rios is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International: a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, which seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner~or partner families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeownersâ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.

Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and the monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor~sweat equity~into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
