About Habitat for Humanity of Mason
Habitat for Humanity of Mason County is a faith-based housing ministry partnering with the community to improve, maintain and build affordable quality housing for those in need.
All are Welcome
Habitat for Humanity (Name) has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
By engaging the entire community, we offer programs for people in need of affordable home ownership opportunities and programs for current homeowners seeking to preserve their homes.
Habitat for Humanity of Mason County is a partnership between families, volunteers and donors working together to improve the living conditions of families in Mason County.
