Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County, MO, a non-profit, volunteer driven organization, was founded in 2001. Habitat is dedicated to creating work force housing for hard-working families in Franklin County.
How a home is built. Virtually every aspect of building a safe, decent, affordable home is at the direction of volunteers.

- select the site,
- select the partner family,
- construct the home with the partner family,
- and then rejoice with the new Habitat homeowners.
How Partner families are selected: Families are selected using a rigorous application process. The process is based on need, income and acceptable credit history. The partnership includes the families willingness to complete 300 hours of sweat equity on their home prior to move in.
