Cowlitz County Habitat for Humanity
A world where everyone has a decent place to live! We have been serving families through sustainable construction, housing and family supportive programs in Cowlitz County for 17 years! Our mission statement is: "Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope." We are a "HAND-UP" not a hand-out organization and offering tools to empower those we serve to live and participate in their community more fully. Our applicants for all programs provide sweat equity and work alongside our volunteers. We do this through offering a continuum of services including new home construction; repairing exterior homes through our "A Brush with Kindness" program; neighborhood revitalization; family readiness classes (including financial and budgeting classes, how to be a good neighbor, home maintenance, safety, neighborhood engagement and many others); partnering with other wonderful agencies in our community TOGETHER building HOMES, COMMUNITY and HOPE!
Cowlitz County Habitat for Humanity is raising funds for two programs including our "Brush with Kindness Program" (ABwK). This program benefits low-income families who are looking to improve their current home by exterior repair work such as landscaping/safety/debris removal; painting and other exterior repair work; ramps and rails. Often this includes elderly families on fixed income and veterans. We are also seeking funding to purchase property where by we can develop several Habitat homes in one area. THANK YOU for YOUR SUPPORT!
