Habitat for Humanity Capital Region repairs and builds homes to sell to people in need of decent and affordable housing in Ingham County, Mich. Habitat for Humanity Capital Region is part of a global nonprofit housing organization that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat was founded on the conviction that everyone deserves a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Habitat for Humanity Capital Region has served more than 800 families throughout its 29-year history in greater Lansing.
