Habitat for Humanity

We Are Building a House!

The SJV Habitat for Humanity Team is building an entire house in thanksgiving to Our Lord for the blessings He’s bestowed upon St. John Vianney Catholic Church and in honor of our Golden Jubilee.

We will need over 230 volunteers to get this done, so please sign up to participate in this historic event.

More about Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, with thousands of sponsors and volunteers, has built over 940 homes for hard-working, low-income Houstonians. Habitat Partner Families contribute 300 hours of “sweat equity” and complete training on home ownership to purchase homes with no-interest mortgages.

Habitat’s Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat’s Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County works by faith to change lives and empower families by building homes in partnership with God and people from all walks of life.

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every family should have the opportunity to own a basic, decent home in which to live in dignity and safety. Habitat partners with community organizations to create affordable housing and help develop responsible homeowners and successful neighborhoods.
