Shelter from rain, wind and sun is a basic human need.
Habitat for Humanity provides decent, affordable houses to families in need. Habitat homeowners gain self-respect as they work alongside volunteers to construct their homes.
Our purpose is to build homes with families and then to sell the houses at no profit and no interest to families who could not otherwise afford a home. Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes. Instead, a family pays an affordable mortgage with 0% interest. The house payments are used to build more homes with other families. Habitat for Humanity works with families, not for families.
To be considered for a home through Elko County Habitat for Humanity, several guidelines must be met such as a housing need (unsafe or unsanitary conditions, spending more than 50% of monthly income for housing, overcrowding, etc.)
All the money donated to Elko County Habitat for Humanity, stays in Elko County.
Elko County Habitat for Humanity is organized and ran by it’s Board of Directors.
