Bringing People Together to Build HOMES, COMMUNITIES, AND HOPE
Abilene Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry that invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build together in partnership with local families to eliminate substandard housing from the city of Abilene. Thanks to the countless hours of service contributed by committed volunteers and the monetary and material donations provided by the Abilene community, 162 homes have been built or renovated to provide simple, decent shelter for local families. Habitat builds homes in partnership with hardworking, low-income families and the community. The homes are sold at no profit with zero-percent interest mortgages to partnering families, whom we have prepared to be successful homeowners.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Indeed, a well-established job posting internet site, has just ranked Habitat for Humanity as the number one non-profit place to work. In its statement, the job search organization mentioned that 10.3% of all non-government jobs are with non-profits, so they posed the question “which of them are giving their employees the very best work experience while empowering them to serve their communities?” Their data science team crunched the numbers in Indeed’s 15 million strong reviews database to find out. In addition to current hurricane recovery efforts, Habitat works in over 70 countries through 1,400 affiliates and is dedicated to building, renovating and improving homes for families in need. We also ranked #1 in management and culture. See the full results here .
