Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is a non-profit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and invites people from all walks of life to work in partnership to build houses with individuals and families in need. It offers partner families an opportunity to help themselves, to own a decent, affordable home of their own, which they pay for and maintain.
Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County celebrated the completion of its 10th home in November for the family of Chandra White in Maryville.
Partner families invest hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” into building their homes and the homes of others. The houses are sold at no profit and with no interest charged. Mortgage payments are placed in a revolving fund and used by Habitat for Humanity to finance additional houses.
Individual donors, churches and corporate sponsors provide the funding and materials to build Habitat houses. Volunteers provide the labor.
Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is one of more than 50 affiliates and campus chapters in the state of Missouri.
