Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization and welcomes volunteers from all faiths who are committed to Habitat's goal of eliminating poverty housing.


Now in its 4th year, #Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that takes place on the Tuesday following Cyber Monday. This day kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on holiday and end-of-the-year giving. It brings focus to charitable giving as a wonderful way to honor others during the holidays and grow the resources of nonprofits in our region.  #GIVINGTUESDAY BY THE NUMBERS video -- click here
What is Habitat for Humanity of Ouachita?
Habitat for Humanity of Ouachita is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit Christian housing organization.  Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing.  These houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and financed with affordable mortgages.  Mortgage payments support the program so more Habitat homes can be built.  Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual & corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat homes.  Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others.  The four things needed to build a Habitat home are 1) partner families, 2) volunteers, 3) a place to build, and 4) project funding.  Project funding is our biggest need.  We invite you to join us as we work in partnership with God's people in need, helping them to secure decent, affordable shelter.
Near the end of 2007, several ULM technical writing students administered a survey to a sample of our Habitat partner families as a Service-Learning Project.  Fifty percent of those surveyed indicated an increase in voting, volunteerism, and involvement with church related activities.  Seventy five percent indicated an increase of involvement with the school.  One hundred percent indicated they feel safer.  The positive changes in the Habitat home residents' everyday life include: spending more time with their family, feeling safer in their new neighborhood, knowing their children can play safely outdoors, and having lower utility payments.
