Community Involvement

Habitat For Humanity Tri-Cities

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty and homelessness. Habitat works in partnership with low-income working families, sponsors and communities to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat homes. Since Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities’ inception in 1994, we have built over 70 homes throughout the Tri-Cities. Our goal is to build 12 homes a year – starting a home a month – and sustaining that level of construction indefinitely.

The net effect: Results. Choose the Best. It’s your Healthcare. It’s your Choice. Choose your Tri-Cities Cancer Center.
