Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International and operates in Polk County, NC and Landrum, SC. Our mission is to provide affordable housing in a decent community for people (Partners) of modest income who otherwise might not be able to afford homeownership. We have the following objectives:
To exemplify the Gospel of Jesus Christ through loving acts and spoken and written word.
To construct or rehabilitate housing for Partners who meet the requirements established by Thermal Belt Habitat, which are paid for by the Partners through interest free loans without profit to Habitat.
To utilize energy efficient materials and building techniques wherever possible.
To provide opportunity for volunteers and Partners to gain experience in the various aspects of home building and maintenance.
To solicit and receive contributions of money, property, building materials, and labor to support the construction and rehabilitation of housing.
To raise funds by maintaining a resale store (ReStore).
To accommodate a handicapped or elderly Partner in site selection and architectural design if necessary.
