Habitat for Humanity of Seattle/South King County Charity Profile
Habitat for Humanity of Seattle/South King County is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Established in 1986 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat for Humanity of Seattle/South King County works in partnership with God and people from all walks of life to build decent, affordable homes for families in need.
Since 1986 our local affiliate has built simple, decent affordable housing in partnership with 121 very low-income families. Habitat is not a giveaway program. Homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor -- sweat equity -- into building their Habitat house and they pay a no-profit, no-interest mortgage.
