Since 1996, St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity has worked within our community, building decent, affordable homes for those in need. We’ve grown from an “all-volunteer” organization to a community-supported organization in St. Joseph.

In this Easter Letter from Jonathan T.M. Reckford, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity International, you can learn more about our vision and about our philosophy.






Building and revitalizing homes and neighborhoods is visible: building hope while transforming lives is what is felt throughout the community, from our homeowners to all the selfless volunteers. Together, we are able to work side by side with families of low income to make their dreams come true.

St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seek to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes, by advocating for fair and just housing policies, and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.



Habitat for Humanity Seeking Funding for New Distribution Center
St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity is seeking funds to help finish a new community distribution center that is currently in the works. The facility would be used to store construction and other materials, making them more quickly available when needed. There also will be space for educational and other activities.

“We did receive $275,000 through ARPA funding through the county, which we’re extremely grateful for,” said Shay Homeyer, the agency’s executive director. “We look forward to finding more funding options to help us complete the project.” Read More
