No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve a decent place to call home.

We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.

At Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us.

Through shelter, we empower. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we — we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.

What We Stand For

Diversity, equity and inclusion

South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity has partnered with RisewithKJ, LLC in becoming an anti-racist, pro ­inclusive community organization. We acknowledge the painful history of legalized oppression and discriminatory practices in housing and intersecting industries against communities of color.

Future Generations

We focus on making lasting changes in our community by building wealth and nurturing environments for our elders and children. Future generations will be empowered by our long-term strategy and vision of a world where everyone can have the opportunity to live in a decent, sustainably built and affordable home.

People First

Putting people first is an integral part of our core philosophy. By examining policies and practices both inside and outside of our organization, framing decisions based upon their impact on people, and addressing those most often marginalized, we are committed to creating a more diverse and equitable community.


We are committed to conducting ourselves in a manner consistent with the highest standards of integrity. We are honest, ethical, and fair in everything we do. We keep our word, deliver on our promises, acknowledge our mistakes, and do the honorable thing in the face of adversity.


We cultivate community by establishing and nurturing a sense of connectedness and belonging across all aspects of our work. We acknowledge that we depend on each other, that our dependence and connectedness is rooted in trust and collectively working toward a common goal.


Habitat Welcomes All

South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, we welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and serve people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.

Non-Proselytizing Policy

Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations (Habitat) will not proselytize, nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
