Habitat for Humanity of Stokes County builds new, quality, affordable homes for hardworking men and women in our area.
The Habitat model assists local hard-working families who do not qualify for traditional mortgages to become homeowners. After meeting certain income, credit, and rental history qualifications, our future Habitat homeowners attend financial education and home ownership/maintenance classes. They earn social engagement or "sweat equity" hours by helping build their own homes or those of others and serve as volunteers with Habitat or in the community. Upon closing on their home, they begin paying an affordable mortgage back to Habitat, which allows us to help more families.
Habitat relies on individual donations, corporate and faith partnerships, and government funding to strengthen lives through the opportunity to purchase affordable homes. Homeownership builds thriving communities and makes it possible for people to live in the communities where they work.
Habitat for Humanity of Stokes County has built 18 houses throughout Stokes County and plans to initiate a repair program this year.

Having been introduced to HFH in college, I never dreamed that I would one day be Stokes County's Construction Coordinator. The best part of my job is being able to work alongside the families as they build their own homes and getting to know the amazing volunteers who come out to help.Image

Habitat’s Mission statement
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus, acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God’s love and grace abound for all, and that we must be “hands and feet” of that love and grace in our world. We believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith, respectful relationships can grow among all people. Focus on shelter.
We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God’s love, to create opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. Advocate for affordable housing.
In response to the prophet Micah’s call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable. Promote dignity and hope.
We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships. Support sustainable and transformational development.
We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
