Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry. We seek to eliminate poverty, housing, and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. To accomplish these goals, we invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, sustainable homes alongside its homeowner (partner) families. Building on the Winneshiek County house is complete and was dedicated in January 2013. Contact Habitat for more information.
