About Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County

 

Officially recognized as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International in 1999, the Board of Directors of the local Habitat group represents business and professional people as well as representatives of churches of many denominations. After years of service, our local Habitat has built 12 houses. This was made possible by the donations of money, material and volunteer time from a wide spectrum of the community.  Homeowners are chosen on the basis of need, ability to pay for the house at a very favorable rate and the willingness to work 200 hours on their house or other Habitat projects.  Not only do the occupants of the new home benefit, but the community volunteers also gain a sense of cooperation and dedication to this very meaningful work of God.  They donate their work, time, materials, and most of all love.  It is then that the volunteer builders realize the true spiritual meaning of Christ’s words, “In as mush as you have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25)

 

Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County  is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

 

All are welcome

 

Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
