About the ministry of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties…
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties was established twenty-five years ago, when their affiliate began with a small group of dedicated volunteers and their desire to eliminate poverty housing in their community became the focus. Today, they have served over 400 families, and changed the face of many area neighborhoods. Through the years, two things have remained constant – their unrelenting determination to end poverty housing through their “hand up and not a hand out” program, and their commitment to maintaining their identity as a Christian ministry.
None of the work which they have accomplished would have been possible without the support they have received from generous donors and devoted volunteers!
