Montcalm Co HFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

Founded in 1994
We've just completed our 6th house in Greenville on Walnut St. It was a house that was started in 1997 by a builder and abandoned and Habitat finished it with volunteers and donations from this community. On October 2nd we held a house dedication and signed a mortgage with the Vos family. They will experience a great thing when they spend their first holidays in their very own home. We thank all the volunteers and donors that made this happen!
We currently are in the process of another build located at 603 Franklin St in Greenville.(one block west of M-91) This will be part of the Jimmy Carter Work Project in 2005. But building has started now. Your help is needed! Come out and join the fun! Put your skills to work on this house and help us build lives and dreams by building a house for a family who desperately needs it.

In addition to volunteers needed for the site, there are many things that are needed. Volunteers who are good at baking can drop goodies by for the people on the site. We always need people in the office for computer entry, updating data bases, doing mailings and working on publicity and fundraising. Typically office hours are from 9-2:30. We are located in the second story of Huntington Bank downtown Greenville.
If you or someone you know is in need of decent, affordable housing, please call our office for more information about the process of applying for Habitat home ownership. Currently, we are not accepting applications, but we are taking names of people who would like to be contacted when we are accepting.
