|History & Mission
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, & hope.
The idea of a statewide Habitat for Humanity cooperative was first born on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College in 1992. It was over lunch at a state Habitat for Humanity conference that Dick Baker of Hardy County, Kirk Lyman-Barner from Almost Heaven HFH in Pendleton County and Steven Spears of the Buckhannon River affiliate first kicked the idea around. Their discussion primarily revolved around volume purchasing and central warehousing of materials for Habitat houses, but as other voices were added many possibilities of other sharing of resources where mentioned. But due to the all-volunteer nature of Habitat in those days the idea never went much further than the discussion that day.
