Building hope, changing lives

What is Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley?

Building houses, building hope…building communities

Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley (HfHGV) helps people transform their lives by partnering with families and our communities to construct well-built affordable housing. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we pledge to make shelter a matter of conscience for people around the world.  We embrace the CORE DOCUMENTS as defined by Habitat for Humanity.  These can be read at Core Document page under this heading.

Since 1991, we have built 75 homes in the Gallatin Valley and Park County, and through our tithing to Habitat for Humanity International we’ve helped fund over 71.9 homes internationally.

Affordable housing continues to be a pressing need in our community. We invite you to help increase our capacity to build homes and transform the lives of families in need in your community and around the world.

As Habitat International has shifted focus on keeping homeowners in their homes, we too have expanded our program to include Critical Repairs, A Brush With Kindness, and Weatherization projects. These, like our house building program, requires sweat equity hours, some kind of payback so we can pass it forward to help more families and strengthens our communities by keeping homeowners in their homes so they can continue to be part of their community.

Applications for all of our programs can be obtained by calling the Habitat Office at 406-388-8225

Our ReStore continues to be our main source of income providing $0.70 cents for every dollar earned to go back into our programs. Please consider a donation to Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley to strengthen families, communities, and our neighborhoods.

Humility: We believe it is important to be in fellowship with others, our partner families, volunteers and donors, in a modest way, without arrogance. Our partnerships are not greater to lesser. It is a mutual ministry, one to another, meant to help all of us grow into the people God calls us to be as neighbors, friends, and family and to provide a hand-up to those around us.

Loving Kindness/Mercy: We believe it is important to fulfill our commitments to meet the needs of others as God commands us to do via providing opportunities for affordable housing; and honor our commitments to our volunteers and partners of being fiscally responsible with the funds they have entrusted to us and making efficient use of the material, time and people resources they have entrusted to us.

Ethics: We value the dedication of our Board of Directors and staff and seek to empower them through ongoing professional development and support in order to achieve our mission with the highest of ethical standards.
