Habitat 2.0 (Future Plan)

Future Plans InfographicHabitat for Humanity of Lincoln County 2.0

Our goal in revitalizing Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County is not to change the brand of Habitat for Humanity International, but to improve the brand of our program as well as the homes we build for our partner families.

The mission of our organization is still the same, “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope." The changes we have made will help us improve the ways in which we accomplish this goal in the future, resulting in a greater impact for partner families around Lincoln County.

We’re working to improve not only the way we build homes for Lincoln County families, but the way in which we help them build a future.

View the presentation below to learn more about how we're implementing these changes.

Community Development

revitalize2For families to succeed, sometimes the dynamics of their neighborhood have to change. Neighborhood Revitalization is a holistic approach that expands Habitat’s traditional partnership with new homeowners and volunteers to include neighbors and local organizations for a far greater impact.

While new home construction continues to play a vital role, a bigger toolbox that includes repairs and other services allows Habitat to serve more families. Neighborhood Revitalization starts at the grassroots level — with people in the community determining the goals for their neighborhood.
