OUR VISION: A world where
has a decent place to live.
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.
to build homes, communities and hope.
