Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere from all walks of life to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating houses, so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which every person can experience God's love and can live and grow into all that God intends.
Habitat's Goal: Eliminating Poverty Housing Worldwide
Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has been working to achieve its goal of eliminating poverty housing worldwide. In the United States, Habitat is among the top 10 home builders in the nation. It is committed to building decent houses in decent communities for God's people in need.
ReStore's mission is to raise money to support our local Habitat for Humanity affiliate in its efforts to build affordable housing for low income families.
Located in the heart of Peoria at 804 W. Main St., ReStore is open to the public and is a home improvement store that sells new and lightly used building materials, furnishings, and home improvement items at a fraction of retail prices--often more than 50% below retail value.
All items sold at ReStore are donated to us by businesses, contractors and the general public. Call 309 676-8402 for donation or pick up information.
A Hand Up, Not A Handout
Habitat is not a giveaway program. It is a joint venture between community and homeowner. Houses are sold to families with mortgages for 20 years. Each homeowner pays a no-interest monthly mortgage payment to Habitat, and those funds are put back into a Fund for Humanity that supports the construction of more houses.
