We’re Pensacola Habitat for Humanity
Since 1981, we’ve built thousands of homes in the Escambia and Santa Rosa county area.
But our impact goes beyond building houses. We reach wide across the community, with various programs and services aimed at transforming communities, one homeowner at a time.
Our homeowners are just that, home owners. We help our homeowners break down the barriers to homeownership, familiarizing them with the home buying process. Just like all homeowners, they put in their own money toward a down payment and closing costs, they pay a mortgage, and maintain all the responsibilities that come with their first home including paying their own insurance and taxes.
But even more, our homeowners attend homeowner readiness courses that empower and help them learn the skills necessary for successful homeownership such as home maintenance, budgeting, and repair.
Our homeowners go further by investing their “sweat equity” into physically building their own homes—and contributing toward the construction of others’.
We believe better prepared homeowners create better citizens, and more engaged neighbors. This is how we’re building up communities, one homeowner at a time.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
Focus on shelter.
Advocate for affordable housing.
Promote dignity and hope.
Support sustainable and transformative development.
For each home we build, Pensacola Habitat for Humanity tithes to international Habitat for Humanity affiliates.
The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to make affordable housing available worldwide. The tithe program was created to give affiliates a way to impact Habitat’s global ministry in addition to impacting the need in their local communities. Tithing gives affiliates an opportunity to share their resources with developing countries throughout the world, and to have both a global and a local home building program. By supporting Habitat’s work outside of the US, your affiliate or campus chapter can make it possible to achieve a world where someday, everyone will have a good place to call home.
Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat 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.
