We believe that every child needs a place to call home. A place where they can grow up healthy, be safe, learn and dream. 


Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Our mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.


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.


The Winfield Area Habitat for Humanity is currently finishing up our 27th Habitat home! We have been building one home per year since the beginning of our organization. We are a group full of passion and love for our community and its residents. Join us and help make Winfield, Kansas, a better place to live for all.

Does Habitat just give houses away?
  • No, Habitat for Humanity is not a giveaway program.

  • Habitat’s partner families buy the houses that Habitat builds and renovates.

    • Habitat makes no profit on the sale.

    • Habitat homeowners purchase their houses through affordable monthly mortgage payments.

  • Habitat’s homeowners also invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners.

What are Habitat affiliates?
  • Affiliates are community-level Habitat for Humanity organizations that act in partnership with and on behalf of Habitat for Humanity International.

  • Each affiliate coordinates all aspects of Habitat home building in its local area.

  • Learn more about our affiliates.

How are the families chosen?
  • Families in need of decent, affordable shelter apply to their local Habitat organization, called an affiliate.

  • Each affiliate’s family selection committee chooses Habitat homeowners for their local area, based on three criteria:

    • The family’s level of need.

    • Their willingness to become partners in the program.

    • Their ability to repay the loan through an affordable payment plan.

  • Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection.

  • Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing Habitat’s homeowner families.

  • Visit our page on becoming a Habitat homeowner to learn more.


How does Habitat work with our government?
  • We ask legislators and housing regulators to increase support for affordable homeownership and eliminate poverty housing.
  • We monitor public policies related to housing, community and international development.
  • We advocate for policies that will increase access to decent, affordable housing for people around the world.
  • We accept government funds as long as they have no conditions that would violate our principles or limit our ability to proclaim our Christian identity.
  • Learn more about our advocacy efforts.


Can I donate materials?
  • Many local Habitat organizations operate ReStores, which sell reusable and surplus building materials, furniture and appliances to the public. To donate materials, contact your local Habitat ReStore.

How are donated items used?
  • We rely on gifts from individuals, corporations and other groups to fund our house-building mission worldwide. All donations of any amount are deeply appreciated and help us build more decent, affordable houses with more families across the globe.

  • Designated donations are allocated in support of the U.S. affiliate, national organization or program of the donor’s choosing.

  • Undesignated gifts are invested through the Global Impact Fund where they can have the greatest impact. The Global Impact Fund helps:

    • Design and replicate innovative programs to serve more low-income families.  

    • Build the capacity of our network of U.S. affiliates and national organizations.

    • Cover other costs necessary to ensuring that Habitat fulfills its mission with excellence.

  • Habitat’s most recent audited financial statement is available online
