The Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity (MAHFH) formed in 1994, is served by a local board of directors. We are affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. We invite people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Together, we bring people together to build homes, communities and hope to make the world a better place!
What We Do:
MAHFH partners with families in need, volunteer workers, and local businesses to build, renovate and/or repair simple decent houses with the help of families, volunteers and donations. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit. They are financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments, along with material and financial donations and volunteer workers, are used to build still more Habitat houses.
Building Strength, Stability, Self-reliance and Shelter
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures. At Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we – we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
A Habitat home is a strong foundation for a family, an opportunity in which they can build a better life. Strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities.
A Habitat home is a stabilizing force for a family. Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development and the ability – and financial flexibility – to make forward-looking choices.
Through shelter, we empower. A decent place to live and an affordable mortgage help homeowners save more, invest in education, pursue opportunity and have more financial stability.
In partnership with a qualifying family, we build a new, affordable home. Qualifying families are required to invest sweat equity and pay for the cost of materials and land.
Critical Home Repair
Habitat for Humanity provides subsidized critical home repairs and modifications for seniors, those with disability or low income circumstances.
Make your time count. Volunteer for new builds, home repairs, as a board member, fund raising or expertise. All are welcome and needed. Choose a program that fits your needs and interests.
