Habitat for Humanity


New Habitat House

Habitat for Humanity is planning to build a home for a single mother who has three children.  Contact Mike Mitton at mmitton@windstream.net if you can volunteer for this mission.

Habitat for Humanity seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.  

Habitat is an ecumenical ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing throughout the world.  Lexington UMC is a member of a coalition of churches dedicated to building habitat homes in the Lexington area.  We collect the funding and furnish volunteer labor to build a home for a recipient chosen by the local Habitat affiliate.  The new homeowner is chosen on three criteria; need of housing, ability to pay, and willingness to partner.  The new homeowner must repay an interest-free mortgage to habitat and furnish hundreds of man-hours on their own and other habitat homes to qualify.  Our coalition has built several habitat homes in the Lexington area over our years of participation.
