Who We Are

An Affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International

Our mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Our vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our principles

  1. Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.

  2. Focus on shelter.

  3. Advocate for affordable housing.

  4. Promote dignity and hope.

  5. Support sustainable and transformative development.

Who we are

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Through our 2020 Strategic Plan, Habitat for Humanity will serve more people than ever before through decent and affordable housing.

Non-proselytizing policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.


Every family deserves the basic right to adequate shelter.

Our Mission

Putting faith into action, Rockbridge Area Habitat brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. We seek to eliminate substandard housing in Rockbridge County by partnering with the community to make safe, decent, affordable housing a matter of conscience and action.

Our Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
