We don’t just want to shelter families; we want them to thrive. Our organization focuses on restoring the strength & stability of those in need.

what is "Habitat for Humanity?"

Habitat for Humanity (HFH) is a nonprofit organization founded by Millard and Linda Fuller in 1976. Since then, our organization has grown to serve 120 countries and all 50 United States with our 1200+ affiliates. Our Lewis & Clark Affiliate was established in 1990 and has successfully placed over 70 families in our homes far! We service many communities in southern Illinois, including Edwardsville/Glen Carbon, Alton, Collinsville, O’Fallon, and Bond County.

our mission...

is to provide decent, affordable housing to families in need. Our vision and hope is to eliminate poverty and substandard housing.

how it works...

We seek local families in need, and through an application process held within the community, families are selected by our Volunteer Family Selection Committee. All HFH homeowners participate in the building of their own home.

Once a build is complete, the homeowner makes monthly mortgage payments (0% interest) to LC Habitat. These payments are used in part to build homes for other selected families in the future!
