Seneca Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with God’s people in need by building and renovating homes so that there are decent homes in decent communities in which people can live and grow into all that God intended.

About usWhile Habitat for Humanity is an international organization, Seneca Habitat for Humanity is completely local. All the funds, materials and labor are provided by Seneca County volunteers, churches, organizations and businesses.

Seneca Habitat for Humanity builds simple housing and sells the houses to selected families with no profit or interest added.

Seneca Habitat for Humanity selects homeowner families who are living in inadequate housing and who are unable to secure adequate housing by conventional means. All homeowners contribute “sweat equity,” working as partners with donors and other volunteers on the houses Habitat builds.

Seneca Habitat for Humanity seeks to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus Christ to all people.

While Habitat is a Christian organization, it invites and welcomes board and committee members, volunteers and donors from other faiths actively committed to Habitat’s Mission, Method of Operation and Principles.

Our History

Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, with the intent of engaging with low-income families in building them homes that are safe, decent, and affordable. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Habitat for Humanity International has grown into an organization that serves needy families the world over, and has built over 400,000 homes and served over 2 million people worldwide.

Seneca Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1986, and is based in Tiffin, Ohio. Governed by a board of directors and administrated by the Executive Director, Seneca Habitat is a volunteer-driven organization that has completed 40 homes to date over the past 30 years, and continues to build homes for low-income families in Tiffin. Each home is built by volunteer labor, and families are able to realize their dreams of affordable home-ownership through the hard work that Seneca Habitat’s volunteers contribute.
