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. 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 to finance additional houses. Volunteers provide the labor, and individuals, churches, and corporate sponsors provide the money and materials to build Habitat houses.
Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is one of more than 50 affiliates and campus chapters in the state of Missouri.
