Our Mission

Founded in 1992, Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Panhandle is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International and is a 501c3 not-for-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry. We build simple, energy efficient and affordable houses for low income families in Berkeley, Morgan and Jefferson Counties. Families who apply for an opportunity to partner with Habitat EP must meet the income guidelines, have a reportable source of income and demonstrate that they are in substandard living conditions. Habitat EP is also recognized as a certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). This designation enables access to federal grants for use in such areas as infrastructure and land development for low income housing.  The Board of Directors reserves one third of its seats for persons who are representative of identified low income communities.
