Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Cumberland Valley Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy. All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
Cumberland Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) is an affiliate organization of Habitat for Humanity International. CVHFH is a non-profit, ecumenical, grassroots Christian ministry which builds simple, decent, and affordable houses in partnership with families in need, donors and volunteers.
Cumberland Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) has built homes for low-income families of Cumberland County since 1993. In its infancy CVHFH was run almost entirely by volunteers. Volunteers remain the backbone of our organization, and provide the manpower necessary to complete our mission. As the organization has grown, so has our ability to help with the needs of the community. We continue to make homeownership a possibility for many, but also provide financial education and home repair services. Creating a strong, healthy community is fundamental to the mission of CVHFH.
