Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity
You must be a Christian to qualify for a HFH house.
HFH homeowners are chosen without notice of their race, religion , or ethnic group.
HFH homes reduce the value of a neighborhood's properties.
Studies show that the homes do not reduce the values, but increases the value and local government tax income.
HFH gives houses away to poor and homeless people.
HFH offers homes to anyone who cannot obtain house financing.
Habitat homeowners pay a minimum of $800 during the construction process.
Additionally, they contribute 200-300 hours of sweat equity on the construction of their home or someone else's home.
“I thought Habitat helped people who were homeless or unemployed."- Linda DeStefano
