HOW DOES HABITAT HELP?
River City Habitat for Humanity, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is a nonprofit housing organization working in the Jefferson City area.  Our vision is  a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  We work toward that vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. 

River City Habitat for Humanity began in 1992 and we have built over 100 homes in Jefferson City for families in need. We build quality, low cost homes that are then sold to families at 0% interest over 25 years. The monthly mortgage payments made by families then go into a revolving fund to help build more homes.

In addition to building homes, we also operate a a 16,000 square foot home improvement center called the ReStore.  People donate new or gently used building materials, household goods, furniture and more which we then turn around and sell at a bargain price.  Money raised is then used to build homes for families in need!  

 
 
ABOUT US
River City Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry whose objective is to eliminate poverty housing from the Jefferson City area. We work with eligible low-income families to build quality low-cost houses which are sold to the families without profit, and financed for them on a no-interest basis.  Monthly payments made by the families then go into a fund which is used to build houses with other families.  Funds and building materials are donated by individuals, churches, businesses and other organizations.  Construction labor and support of the organization is provided by volunteers.
We work with individuals and families who earn between 30%- 60% of the median income in Cole County.  To qualify for our program, you must demonstrate a NEED for safe housing, have the ABILITY to pay a 25 year mortgage and be WILLING to partner with River City Habitat for Humanity. 
WHO WE SERVE
WHAT WE DO
River City Habitat for Humanity began building homes in 1992.  In 1999, we launched a new venture called the Habitat ReStore, a home improvement  store and donation center that sells building materials, appliances, new and gently used furniture, and home accessories at a fraction of the retail price. It is owned and operated by River City Habitat for Humanity, and all proceeds from the store go towards the mission of building affordable homes in Jefferson City. 
A 16 member Board of Directors meets monthly to determine policy and to oversee operations.  Heavily dependent on volunteer labor, River City Habitat for Humanity operates with one full-time Executive Director, a full-time Construction Manager and two additional part-time staff members.  Input from various volunteer committees also contribute to the operations of the organization.
