Who Are We?
Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller in Americus, GA. The concept was developed at Koinnonia Farms with home building beginning in 1968. Over 800,000 homes around the world have been built, rehabilitated, or repaired since it was founded. Habitat's reach extends to all 50 U.S. states and more than 70 countries around the world. After nearly four decades of building homes and helping 5 million people improve their housing situations, Habitat understands that adequate housing fundamentally transforms lives. Children gain a sense of security, have room to grow and can focus more on their education and dreams for the future. Since March 1984, when President Carter first donated his time and carpentry skills to Habitat, the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project (CWP) has been helping spread the message of Habitat for Humanity International around the world. The projects have taken thousands of other volunteers to house-building sites worldwide. Hub Area Habitat for Humanity is the Aberdeen area affiliate of HFHI and was founded in 1993. Hub Area HFH has built or renovated 12 homes, 11 of which are located on or near Ward Drive. Dr. Dick Ward was the first executive director followed by Peter Kirkpatrick. In the beginning, Hub Area Habitat for Humanity had difficulty finding suitable lots for home building. Consequently Hub Area Habitat for Humanity decided to purchase and develop land for Habitat homes. After the North Penn home was completed, Hub Area Habitat secured financing used to purchase and develop 14 lots on Ward Drive. Ten lots currently have Habitat homes with two additional lots having Governor's Houses.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
