CHAPTERS IN THE METRO EAST

Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about us!
 
Lewis & Clark Habitat for Humanity serves Bond & Madison counties in Illinois by providing support to its local chapters -  Alton, Collinsville, Bond County, HighlandWood River, Edwardsville/Glen Carbon, and O'Fallon -  in order to carry out the mission of eliminating poverty housing.
 
Our goal for 2014 is to build four new homes for four new families; that’s where you come in.  We need you to donate your time, talent, or materials. Whether it is a little or a lot…every bit helps. It is people like you giving to us that have made this program grow.
 
"There are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all." - 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
 
"When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed." Mother Teresa
 
The answer to helping these families is not to give them hand out, but to give them a true hand up. A better footing to go from. Something to be proud of because they are making it theirs. The have to put in 400 hours of sweat equity. They will be paying for 25 years back to the program, which help more families. As the old adage says, it is better to teach how to fish than to just give them a fish. Habitat works with the families to break the cycle of poverty.
 
We would like to thank you for your past and future support of this great group.
