Midland County Habitat for Humanity (MCHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Midland County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
All are welcome
MCHFH has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
Join Us At The House Party, A Party With A Purpose
This party is more than a fundraiser; it is a collaboration between Midland County Habitat for Humanity (MCHFH) and the Greater Michigan Construction Academy (GMCA).
GMCA facilitates opportunities for career growth in the construction industry through continuing education programs. Starting in 2017 MCHFH and GMCA partnered to build affordable housing. MCHFH places two steel beams at the GMCA facility and provides the materials for the home to be built. GMCA provides the student labor to construct the home which also allows their students to gain hands on experience. Once the house is framed, sided, and rough plumbed, it is moved to location and completed by Habitat volunteers.
Together these organizations are collaborating to raise funds for a new, single family home to be built in the Midland community. Join us in building homes, community and hope in Midland County.

Midland County Housing Analysis 2018
Most communities in America seek to be both economically sustainable and socially equitable. The twin goals, in their
combination, may be aspirational but they are worth striving for. To meet such lofty goals, a community must have a housing market that functions toward those ends.
Midland County’s housing market offers a kind of contradiction; it is both full of choice and generally affordable, but, at the same time, it is not supporting the community’s future economic vitality nor is it serving
the needs of the county’s poorest residents.
How can the Midland area community respond to the challenges and opportunities it is facing when it comes to housing? This report represents the beginning of an effort to answer that
question. czb was retained by Midland County Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with the City of Midland, the United Way of Midland County, and Midland Area Homes, to complete an analysis of the county’s housing market and to assess its affordable housing need.
