Habitat for Humanity of York County is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International --a global, nonprofit housing organization with a mission to operate on Christian principles that seek to put God's love into action by building homes, communities and hope.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Habitat for Humanity of York County is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

All Are Welcome
Habitat for Humanity of York County has an open-door policy: All who believe in our vision that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of who they are or what they believe.
As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
