Founded in 1990, Genesee County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) is one of nearly 1,200 United States affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International.
Millard and Linda Fuller founded Habitat for Humanity International in 1976 with the vision of eliminating poor housing conditions and homelessness from the world. Throughout the last forty years, Habitat for Humanity International has maintained its vision of a world in which everyone has a decent place to live, incorporating both housing and community/neighborhood development in its mission of building homes, communities and hope.
Since its founding, GCHFH has built, rehabilitated or repaired more than 500 homes throughout Genesee County. In 2015, GCHFH was named as an Affiliate of Distinction, placing the organization in the top 1% of Habitat for Humanity affiliates nationally for its high standards in excellence, leadership and innovation. In 2017 GCHFH received this distinction again covering the 2017-2019 period.
