Everyone is welcome! Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County has an open-door policy: if you agree that everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live, then you’re invited to help with our work – regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, socioeconomic status or any other factor that has the potential to divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and serves people in need of decent housing who come from all backgrounds as well. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
