Habitat for Humanity
is a non-profit Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness in Franklin County. Habitat was founded in the belief that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, decent, and affordable place to live where they may dwell in dignity and safety.

We have taken great strides in empowering our small affiliate to truly begin to tackle a serious problem in Franklin County. Right now, hundreds of hard-working families are living in substandard housing with little or no hope of change. Of those 7800 people living in poverty, almost 30% are children. This is why Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County is working so hard to make a difference in our communities, beginning to solve the problem of inadequate housing.

The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to provide, in partnership with the new homeowner, simple, decent housing. The new homeowner will help build their new home. Habitat will sell the home to the family on a no-profit, no-interest basis.
