Christian housing organization committed to
Helping hard-working Idaho families

Canyon County Habitat for Humanity builds simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
We all work in support of families who invest hundreds of “partnership hours” in preparation for successful homeownership.

Canyon County
Habitat for Humanity is:

A nonprofit, ecumenical Christian Housing Ministry. Founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife, Linda. Seeking to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Inviting people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.

How Does it Work?

volunteer labor

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partner families.

hundreds of hours

In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.

Habitat houses

Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.

build still more

The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.

How are partner families selected?

  • Families in need of decent shelter apply at local Habitat affiliates.
  • The affiliate’s family selection committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the loan.
  • Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection.
  • Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing the families who receive Habitat houses.
