OUR VISION: A world where everyone

WHO WE ARE

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties (HFHWD) is a nonprofit organization that strives to help local low-income families have a place to call home.

  • A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program helps local low-income families repair the exterior of their home.
  • Neighborhood Revitalization Program allows us to partner with neighborhoods to revitalize and renew the community.
  • Habitat Housing program helps local low-income families build their Habitat Homes.
  • Cars for Homes program allows individuals to donate their cars so that the proceeds go back towards our programs.
  • Our ReStore is our home improvement thrift store and donation center. Our Ogden ReStore is located at 3111 Wall Avenue Ogden UT 84401

A Hand-Up Not A Hand-Out

Volunteers, partner homeowners, donors and leaders can make a difference in the local community. Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties doesn't provide a hand-out but instead a hand-up. Homeowners who are building and repairing their homes,
invest a number of "sweat equity hours".

WE STRIVE TO...

The focus is to create opportunities for everyone to live in decent and durable shelter. The goal is to build, renovate, or preserve at least one home per year. With improved finances, Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties is working to make this 2 per year, and the following year to build 3 to 4 new Habitat Homes. The hope is to create affordable housing for local families in the community. This is to break the viscous cycle of poverty.

In 2011, the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative was established. Through the A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program, volunteers have assisted a dozen families and have hosted neighborhood cleanup days. ABWK projects have included exterior home repair, landscaping, building ramps and decks, and so much more. These actions help homeowners and families to lower utility bills and have a safer home.

Everyone should live in their own home with dignity and pride. Every person has something to contribute. Moreover, everyone has something to gain from creating communities where people have affordable places to live. Dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships. Volunteers are able to help provide hope for families by building or repairing homes.

Lives can be transformed from Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis. Positive changes can be made within a community, socially, economically, and spiritually. Evidently, the work done is based on mutual trust and shared accomplishment.

In 2013, this project broke ground by the Ogden Redevelopment Agency. The goal was to increase home ownership in Ogden. Depending on our funding, Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties have the opportunity to build several homes near our Habitat Doxey homes. The goal is to improve the neighborhood.

The mission is “seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope”. Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties believes that everyone must all be the “hands and feet” of that love and grace in our world. Respectful relationships can grow among all people in the community. So much more can be done by demonstrating love, compassion, and respect.

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