A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out
Holston Habitat for Humanity, the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is a non-profit, ecumenical, Christian housing ministry operating in Sullivan, Washington and Carter Counties in Tennessee, as well as the city of Bristol, Virginia.
The affiliate was founded in 1985 and has provided housing solutions, such as new home construction, refurbished homes and exterior repairs for over 300 Habitat families in the Tri-Cities region.
Holston Habitat uses volunteer labor and contributions of money and materials to build and repair houses in partnership with individuals and families with limited financial resources and housing need. New homes are sold to approved homebuyers through an affordable Habitat mortgage.
Holston Habitat for Humanity is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Each year hundreds of volunteers contribute thousands of hours to the organization's various programs. Volunteers work on committees, at construction sites and in the Habitat ReStores.
Holston Habitat has tithed 10% of covenant funds and donations to finance homes for over 270 families overseas.
Over $797,000 has been contributed since 1986.
Seeking to put God’s love
