About Habitat for Humanity of Kankakee County
Welcome to Habitat for Humanity's (HFH) Kankakee County website. This page will give some basic background information on Habitat for Humanity and its' origins. Habitat for Humanity (HFH) International is a nonprofit, faith-based organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide, and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action.
Habitat is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.
There is an open door policy, and all who desire to be a part of this work are welcome, regardless of religious background or preference. We are driven by the desire to give tangible expression to the love of God through the work of eliminating poverty housing. Habitat For Humanity's mission and methods are predominantly derived from a few key theological concepts: the necessity of putting faith into action, the "economics of Jesus" and the "theology of the hammer".
