ABOUT HABITAT OF SHELBY COUNTY
Habitat for Humanity of Shelby County is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. We are a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty stricken housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
HFH of Shelby County began in 1990 with the desire to partner with the people of the community to help those in need of decent, affordable housing. Habitat sells houses to qualified families at no profit with zero interest loans. Kentucky Housing Corporation services mortgage payments pro bono for Habitat for Humanity of Shelby County.
Habitat builds alongside families who demonstrate the need and willingness to partner with Habitat. Habitat offers a hand UP, not a hand OUT to families who invest 400 "sweat equity" hours building their house and working in our warehouse. Their monthly mortgage payments help fund the construction of more houses.
