Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat works toward our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
As we work to fulfill our mission of building homes, communities and hope and putting God’s love into action, we are guided by our core values: humility, courage and accountability.
Courage coupled with humility allows us to take the necessary risks to live into our mission and move ever closer to our vision. Humility and courage provide the foundation to act wisely. Holding ourselves and one another accountable from a posture of humility allows us to learn from our mistakes and continually improve our programs, policies and procedures.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat’s vision is audacious in its scope. To see a world where everyone has a decent place to live is clearly bigger than any of us at Habitat, and it is bigger than all of us collectively. Being called to something so massive and inspiring is humbling.
Habitat for Humanity International is committed to building a diverse, inclusive workforce, and that begins with our talent acquisition team. We endeavor to reach diverse audiences for our openings, are committed to having diverse interviewer panels for candidates and work to educate hiring managers about important issues such as unconscious bias and how to conduct fair and equitable interviewing and hiring processes.
On our journey, we have created employee resource groups to encourage employee engagement, provide opportunities for professional development and internal networking, and inform the implementation of our cultural values and diversity, equity and inclusion strategy. These groups provide for the inclusion of diverse ideas and solutions and create opportunities for mentoring and career development. ERG leaders and the Habitat for Humanity International senior leadership team form our diversity, equity and inclusion council, intended to leverage the diversity of the organization to improve organizational performance as a part of our broader diversity, equity and inclusion strategy.
At Habitat for Humanity International, we embrace a history rooted in creating equity and take our mission seriously by courageously committing to a culture and workplace where all staff feel safe, welcome, visible, respected, supported and valued. As an equal opportunity employer, we realize that our success depends upon building an inclusive workforce of diverse perspectives and encourage people of varied races, ethnicities, national origins, tribes, religions, ages, gender identities and expressions, genders, sexual orientations, marital statuses, disabilities, veteran/reserve national guard statuses, socio-economic statuses, thinking and communication styles to work with us.
We also require that all staff take seriously their ethical responsibilities to safeguarding our intended beneficiaries, their communities (especially children), and all those with whom we work. In line with the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse, all staff must pass a thorough background screening and will be held accountable to upholding our policies around ethical behavior, including safeguarding and whistleblowing.
