Our Mission, Vision, & Principles



Our mission is seeking to put God’s love into action, which in turn brings people together to build homes, communities, & hope.  Motivated by the belief that each of us is called to “act justly love mercy & walk humbly with our God”,  Habitat for Humanity seeks to be a partner & catalyst in building communities where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.  Our method in bringing people together is in addressing the urgent need for adequate, affordable shelter, that we all become less vulnerable, & more resilient.  Cocke County Habitat practices a philosophy of “a hand up, not a hand out” & builds on existing community assets such as financial, physical, natural, human, social & spiritual.
