with people of all faiths and races to develop communities for people in need
by building and renovating houses, creating homeownership opportunities.
Through donations of time, volunteer help, and tax-deductible donations of money and building materials,
Habitat for Humanity, West Bay and Northern R.I. builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Habitat for Humanity, West Bay and Northern R.I. that is used to build more houses.
Whether in the U.S. or overseas, families in need apply to their local Habitat affiliate. The affiliate's family selection committee considers applicants' level of need, their willingness to become partners in the Habitat program and their ability to repay the no-interest loan. Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing Habitat homeowner families.
If your family, or a family you know, is in need of decent, affordable housing, please check our Home Ownership page where you will find information on the requirements for Habitat houses in our area, as well as information on the application process.
Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller as a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing worldwide and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites people from all faiths and walks of life to work together in partnership, building houses with families in need.
Habitat is a worldwide movement with more than 2,100 active affiliates in 100 countries, including all 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. Concerned citizens from all walks of life come together as volunteers to form a Habitat affiliate in their community. Fundraising, house construction, family selection and other key decisions are carried out by the local affiliates. HFHI headquarters, located in Americus, Ga., provides information, training, support and other services to Habitat affiliates worldwide.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
