Our Vision

Habitat for Humanity International Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity Vision

Everyone needs a foundation to build a future. Every home is a building block. Every home improvement gives children a better chance for a stronger future. Every donation helps a family help themselves. Every helping hand makes a difference.

Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity's vision is to build and foster a community where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live. Our Christian foundation calls for us to set aside religious differences and work toward a common goal: to eliminate poverty housing in our community. Our values set the stage for this work.

Partnership - From its very conception, Habitat for Humanity has been built on partnerships — partnerships with families, churches, area corporations, community organizations, and individuals. We believe in the power of families working side by side with volunteers to build a Habitat House.

Homeownership - We believe in the power of homeownership to change lives, improve communities, and build the hope that can break the cycle of poverty.

Diversity - We believe that everyone, from all walks of life, deserves a decent, affordable place to live and that each person has something to contribute to building houses.

Volunteerism - We believe in the power of a community coming together to make a difference, and we are committed to providing exceptional volunteer experiences.

Stewardship - We believe we are responsible to our community and to those who give generously so that we can continue to build houses in partnership with families in need. We are committed to excellence and to the efficient use of our resources, and are accountable to our funders, families, and volunteers.
