Tulsa Habitat for Humanity is a part of a global, non-profit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Tulsa Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and world wide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Tulsa Habitat works in partnership with low-income people to eliminate substandard housing conditions at a local level. The Tulsa affiliate began in 1988, and has completed over 280 homes so far, providing shelter for over 650 Tulsans.
Our MissionSeeking to put God’s love into action, Tulsa Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
VisionA World where everyone has a place to live.
Through house sponsorship, individual donations, and volunteer time, we build quality, affordable and attractive houses. These homes are sold to families through no-interest loans. Home-buyers complete at least 300 hours for single home-buyers and 350 hours for a married couple, of “sweat equity” in addition to paying for their homes, working side-by-side with sponsors and volunteers to help build their own and other Tulsa Habitat homes. Our prospective home-buyers learn what is required to qualify for the Habitat program: steady income, good credit and a need for better housing. Other than the income guidelines, applying for a Habitat home is similar to applying for a conventional loan. Learn more from Tulsa FAQs sheet.
All are welcome
Tulsa Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy. All who believe that everyone need decent, affordable places 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.
