Jackson County Habitat for Humanity is a West Virginia affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International – an organization which is dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing worldwide.
Habitat for Humanity partners with local, low-income families to build houses to become their new homes. Each partner family participates in planning, fundraising, and building phases as part of their “sweat equity” requirement. In return, the families earn a home of their own with a no-interest mortgage. It is important to remember that this program is a hand up, not a hand-out.
Jackson County Habitat is governed by a Board of Directors which meets on the first Tuesday of every month.
