Habitat for Humanity – Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to eliminate poverty housing and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of partner families. Founded in 1989, Huntington County Habitat for Humanity (HCHFH) is an independently run, nonprofit organization, an affiliate of HFHI. We work to eliminate substandard housing in Huntington County by creating simple and affordable housing for those in need and by providing homebuyers the tools they need to become successful, independent homeowners. In Huntington County and across the world, we believe that every person deserves a decent place to live. We put faith into action by building homes and bringing together families, individuals, churches, and corporations to put the need for shelter on hearts and minds in such a powerful way that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable. Huntington County Habitat for Humanity has a goal to build and/or renovate 1 house every year and to be sold to partner families who live or work in Huntington County and earn up to 80% of the Area Median Income.
Helping Paws Pet Haven, Inc. – Helping Paws Pet Haven, Inc. is a volunteer cat rescue. The non-profit organization provides shelter and care for homeless, stray, abandoned and injured cats in need. Some of the cats need just basic healthcare and altering, while others require immediate critical and emergency care. HPPH has had cats needing limb amputations, eye enucleations, dental work requiring extractions and other emergency surgeries. After recovering they are then ready for adoption. No cat is “unadoptable”…. they just need to find a home that works for them. Funds for medical/veterinary care are their greatest need.
