Welcome to the Home page for Habitat for Humanity® of the Sauk-Columbia Area (HFHSCA)! We are a locally controlled, non-profit affiliate of Habitat for Humanity® International. Like Habitat affiliates all over the world, HFHSCA strives “to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.” And wow! Habitat for Humanity has been a very successful program: In less than 40 years, Habitat for Humanity has built or renovated over 800,000 homes around the world, and helped over 3.8 million people begin to move out of poverty.
Habitat for Humanity believes that owning a simple, decent home can provide the road out of poverty for struggling families right here in our area. If you agree, join us as we build homes – and hope – in our communities. Click on the “How to Give Help” tab for details on how to get involved and how to volunteer – either as an individual, or as part of a group.
