Like Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat for Humanity Dubuque and Jackson Counties is founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.
We provide a powerful opportunity for all people to put their core beliefs about justice, loving our neighbors, equity and the environment into bricks and mortar action.
