this is what unites us
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor will not proselytize. Nor will we work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with us. This means that we will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
We are the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, addressing the needs of people living in the Greater Bangor area.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor has worked in partnership with volunteers and low-income families since 1989 to build 21 simple, decent houses in the local community. Habitat's affordable house payments free up money for food, child care, medicine, and other necessities.
Research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children's educational achievement, and strengthens community ties.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry. We seek to eliminate poverty housing, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
We invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need of better housing.
