A Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity (GSHFH) home is not a gift. Through volunteer labor, donations of money and materials, Habitat is able to help qualifying families obtain a home of their own with an affordable mortgage. 

GSHFH partners with people in our community, to help them build, or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes, or repair their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.

GSHFH believes homeownership is a crucial foundation for any family. By moving out of substandard housing and into a Habitat home, homeowners and their families become more likely to improve their health, attain a better education, and increase their safety and personal wealth.

Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliate organizations, including Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity (GSHFH), will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means 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.

Our mission statement.

Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity (GSHFH) is a housing ministry dedicated to strengthening communities by empowering low-income families to change their lives and the lives of future generations through homeownership and home preservation opportunities. This is accomplished by working in partnership with diverse people, from all walks of live, to build simple, decent, affordable housing.
