About the Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity

Who we are

       Founded in 1994, MAHFH is a non-profit Christian housing ministry seeking to eliminate poverty housing and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.  We are an independent organization governed by a Board of Directors that meets monthly to determine policy and coordinate the construction of houses.  More than a construction organization, Habitat for Humanity is a successful, proven, people-to-people partnership aimed at the development and empowerment of persons and communities.  Our sense of social and moral responsibility finds purpose in the Habitat goal to make quality, affordable housing available to God’s people in need. Habitat’s concept of volunteers working in partnership with homeowners who must work a minimum number of hours on their own homes (we call it “sweat equity”) is not duplicated by any other service agency.  For our partner homeowners, the interest-free mortgage and sale of the home with no profit markup by Habitat makes their dream of home ownership possible.

       Our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity is governed by a Board of Directors and volunteers that donate their time and effort to improve our community.
