Vision & Mission
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Our mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes communities and hope in the Columbia Gorge.


As the Gap between wages and affordable housing continues to grow here in the Gorge, more low-income families than ever are in need of a decent place to live.

Columbia Gorge Habitat for Humanity provides home ownership opportunities to families of 25%-60% of the median household income level in Klickitat, Hood River and Wasco counties.

Partnering with the community, our volunteers build simple, decent homes for our partner families. Habitat for Humanity is not a handout program—it is a “hand up” program, helping deserving families realize their dream of home ownership and breaking the cycle of poverty.

Every family we partner with invests hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” working alongside volunteers to help build their home. When construction is complete, every family pays an affordable mortgage. Their mortgage payments are recycled back into our Habitat building fund to help build additional homes for families in need.
