Mission & Vision

Our Mission 

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.


Our Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.


We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God’s love, to build adequate and durable homes with those in need of shelter. Thus, carrying out the belief that safe and affordable housing is a basic human right and a fundamental component of dignity and long term well-being for every person on earth.


At Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area, we live out our mission on a daily basis. Our mission describes what we do in partnership with our homeowners and our community. We believe that God wants us to be an extension of His love and kindness here on Earth. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we work to eliminate poverty housing not only in our own community but worldwide. We would like to invite you to join in our mission. As a community, we can work together for the greater good and inspire change.
