HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF CITRUS COUNTY MISSION STATEMENT
Habitat for Humanity of Citrus County is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry who seeks to put God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, neighborhoods and hope. We work to eliminate substandard housing for people of all backgrounds, races and religions by providing simple, decent, affordable housing to those who have a need, ability to pay and willingness to partner.
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, HFHCC was founded in 1993. Since then, HFHCC has increased the number of houses we build each year in Inverness, Crystal River, Homosassa and Hernando. Blessed with the support of benefactors, churches, businesses, civic organizations and others, we celebrated our 25th year in 2019 and as of June 2020, we have completed our 200th home build.
Habitat for Humanity is not a charity or a give-away program. Partner families pay closing costs and maintain a no-interest mortgage. They also invest hundreds of hours of labor—sweat equity—into building their own homes and the homes of others. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Partner families work alongside generous Habitat volunteers who donate time, skills and energy to help build the houses.
We are people from different faiths, diverse backgrounds and many economic levels. We work toward a common goal, honoring the dignity of each person by helping each one secure a safe, secure and decent place to live.
