Welcome to Habitat for Humanity

Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity builds homes and strengthens families and communities. A habitat house is simple, decent, and affordable. It is small, low maintenance, and energy efficient. There are no frills—no basement, no garage.

We build simple, decent, affordable energy-efficient homes in partnership with qualifying low-income families.

Mission Statement & Mission Principles

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

  1. Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ: We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus, acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God's love and grace abound for a ll, and that we must be "hands and feet" of that love and grace in our world. We believe that, through faith, the minuscule can be multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith, respectful relationships can grow among all people.
  2. Focus on shelter: We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God's love, to create opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.
  3. Advocate for affordable housing: In response to the prophet Micah's call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community's commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable. 
  4. Promote dignity and hope: We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved thorugh equitable, accountable partnerships. 
  5. Support sustainable and transformational development: We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.
