Habitat for Humanity of Stokes County builds new, quality, affordable homes for hardworking men and women in our area.

Habitat Homeowners
Future Habitat for Humanity homeowners qualify for Habitat's homeownership program, meet income qualifications, attend education classes and work with volunteers to build their homes. Habitat homes are not free. Habitat homeowners pay an affordable mortgage made possible because of our funding partners.

Funding
Habitat relies on government, corporate, faith and individual partnerships 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. 

Construction

Diane Myers
Executive Director

I was brought to this affiliate because of one Bible verse. James 2:17 says, “Faith without works is dead.” We can all speak of our faith but until we put God's love into action, it means nothing. I’m blessed to be here and thankful for the support we receive from this community.

Being able to meet with families, get to know them, and watch them grow into their new role as home owners is such a blessing. I truly enjoy being the person who helps these families reach their dreams of owning a home.

April Shelton
Construction Coordinator

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

Administrative Assistant

Some people stand on the sidelines and watch as things change, some people help things to change and some people make those changes happen from the beginning. Being at Habitat has allowed me to become one of the people who make those changes happen. I cannot begin to describe the feeling of being a part of an organization that makes dreams come true for current or soon to be neighbors, friends and families right here in our own community.

I love working at Habitat for Humanity of Stokes County, because at the end of the day, it's not about what you have or what you've accomplished, it's who you've helped and what you've done to give back in service of others.

I love working for Habitat for Humanity because I love helping serve in my community. Restore is such a great place because people come in for so many different reasons! Someone may be financially struggling and trying to furnish their home, someone else for that unique antique and then the next person is a crafty upcycling guru ...ReStore really is for everyone!

Financials

Affordable homeownership continues to challenge our vibrant city with more than 200,000 residents unable to afford housing. Habitat’s homeownership program is one pathway to more empowered, stable and secure financial futures. Currently, 85 cents of every dollar donated to Habitat of Stokes County goes toward providing a Habitat family the life-changing opportunity to purchase and own a home.

About Habitat for Humanity International

Habitat for Humanity of Stokes County is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide. 
 

Habitat’s Mission statement
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Mission principles
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.

Non-proselytizing policy
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.
