Home

Ottumwa 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.

Hammers

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.

News

Since 1994, Ottumwa Habitat for Humanity has placed ten families (32 children) into Habitat homes.

We are now in the process of building our 11th home. We anticipate having our next family into their new home by the spring of 2011.

We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to donate their time and energy to make this project a reality.

We are now accepting homeowner applications through February 15, 2011. To get an application, please call 641-814-2883 or email to [email protected]
