Habitat for Humanity’s Vision
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County Mission Statement
To construct simple, affordable, and decent housing in partnership with families, volunteers, and the community for God’s people in need.
About Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County…
Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County was founded in 1991 by a group of volunteers. Since the beginning we have been building homes alongside deserving, hard-working families who just need a hand up, not a handout, to make their lives better and to escape the cycle of poverty.
Habitat for Humanity of Mesa 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 Mesa 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 Mesa 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.
About our ReStore...
Our original ReStore was opened in 2003 in a small, downtown location on Pitkin Avenue. The original ReStore was a huge success allowing us to build a 20,000 foot ReStore on the north side of town, located at 2936 North Avenue. Over 43,000 hours are donated between our ReStore and Construction volunteers each year helping us to keep our operation running smoothly.
