This video is for anyone volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and what you need to know about construction site safety.
Habitat for Humanity builds homes everywhere...in small towns and in large cities. For low-income families is in need of a decent, affordable place to live, Habitat for Humanity is here to help.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami is a Christian ministry that transforms lives and communities
by providing low-income families with affordable home ownership opportunities.
We build and renovate decent homes, which families purchase at cost and with a 0% interest loan.
We engage people of conscience within our community by providing volunteer and financial
support opportunities to accomplish the building of homes and communities in partnership
with low-income families.
We witness to the Word of God and the love of Jesus Christ for all persons through our words
We follow Biblical teachings in our attitudes and actions.
We build bridges among all economic and ethnic segments of our community by establishing
new relationships, a sense of community, and a renewed commitment to "the common good."
We welcome participation from all individuals, groups, or organizations who desire to join with
Miami Habitat and who share our concern and compassion for those in need.
We are a financially responsible non-profit ministry that raises money from those who share our
vision and to spend the money raised with integrity, community accountability, and for the
specific purpose intended by the donors.
We select families for home ownership based on their need, willingness to be a full partner in
the Habitat program, and ability to repay the interest-free loan in support of the Habitat
ministry. Selection is made without consideration of race, sex, color, creed, national origin,
disability, age, sexual orientation or any other legally protected status.
We maintain a mutually beneficial, nurturing friendship with each family through ongoing
contact and by providing instruction in the areas of budgeting, financial planning, home
maintenance, and other practicalities of homeownership.
We support the work of Habitat ministries in other communities as our resources allow, by
contributing a tithe (10%) of undesignated financial contributions.
