HFH 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, HFH 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, HFH International and its affiliates 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.
Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity was affiliated in 1987 and built its 1st house in 1988. Since it's founding Habitat was reorganized in 2002 and increased its building capacity with 20 houses built in the last 10 years. Habitat has built individual homes and has been involved in community development in the Ezra Bridges Neighborhood. The project in this neighborhood exemplifies the impact Habitat wants to make all over Cleveland County. Working with faith, corporate and community partners Habitat has built 25 homes in Cleveland County.
