Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit Christian organization with the goal of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness. Our affiliate was established in 1991 to serve the families of Cass and Clay counties.
We partner with local businesses, churches and volunteers to help build homes with qualifying families. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Most importantly, partner families play a large role in the building of the home. They invest 250 hours of labor – “sweat equity” – into building their homes and the homes of others. They also make interest-free mortgage payments which go into a fund that is used to build more houses.
