Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley has been dedicated to the ideal that all people deserve to own a home that is both comfortable and affordable. Working in partnership with God, Habitat changes lives by enabling people who live in substandard housing to become responsible homeowners.  Habitat is responsible for the construction of over 100 houses throughout the Valley.  Habitat offers a “hand up” and not a “hand out” to low income families from the four county region.  Family partners must be hard working, low income residents that may not be able to qualify for a traditional mortgage.  

Mission Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Non-proselytizing policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that 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.
