Mission Statement

The mission of Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity is to improve lives in our community by building safe and affordable housing in partnership with God’s people.


How We Do It

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials and the precedes from our ReStore, we build simple, decent and affordable houses with the help of the future homeowners - our partner family. These houses are sold to partner families at an affordable cost and financed with an affordable mortgage.


A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out

Homes are built by forming a partnership with the future homeowner family who must meet a threefold criteria:


  • There must be a need for decent housing.
  • Families must have an income between 35% and 80% of the median income for Montcalm County, adjusted for family size.
  • The family must demonstrate a willingness to partner with us by working a minimum of 250 “Sweat Equity” hours per adult member of the household. A willingness to partner will also mean being a good ambassador for Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity in the community.

 The combination of cost reducing volunteer labor and a zero or low interest mortgage is what makes the home affordable to low-income families. The mortgage payments are recycled through a building fund to build more homes for more families in need.
