About HFHMCI: Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, Inc. is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. Habitat for Humanity 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. 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.

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity International today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate, and repair more than 800,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 4 million people worldwide. Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, Inc. is an Iowa affiliate that was started in 1997. Since then, Habitat has assisted more than 45 families in Marion County either through new home construction, housing rehabilitation, or critical housing repairs.

In addition to the families assisted in Iowa, the Marion County affiliate tithes 10 percent of its unrestricted donations to Habitat for Humanity Guatemala. Currently, Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, Inc. has tithed more than $125,000 to Habitat Guatemala and assisted more than 37 Guatemalan families.
