Mission and History

At Habitat for Humanity of Dane County, we offer a hand up, rather than a hand out. Through our volunteer network, generous donors and sales from our two Habitat ReStores, we’re helping families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance to build a better life through shelter. In Dane County alone, one in eight people lives in poverty, including 16 percent of all Dane County children.
Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit organization, based on Christian principles and dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty housing. Habitat for Humanity builds with people in need regardless of race or religion and welcomes all volunteers and supporters.
Habitat for Humanity’s Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Our Mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Our Goal: Habitat for Humanity of Dane County will be a recognized leader, partner and catalyst for affordable housing solutions that positively impact families, communities and the environment.
Our Values: We are guided in everything we do by these fundamental values:
  • Building communities and families
  • Increasing sustainability
  • Building efficiencies through partnerships
