Mission: We construct simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with families who currently live in unfit, indecent, inhuman conditions and have no possibility of obtaining a home through any conventional means. We then sell these houses to the partner families for cost, with no profit and no interest. We keep costs low by using volunteer labor, providing a means for people who have resources of time, money, or materials to channel them to the poor.
