How We Build
'Love in Action'
Individuals, churches and businesses donate money, materials and time to Habitat for Humanity/Metro Jackson (HFH/MJ). The money provides initial capital. To keep the cost of the homes affordable, as much volunteer labor and as many donated supplies as possible are used. Families work alongside volunteers, putting in "sweat equity" hours. As they make their house payments, contributions are recycled and used again.
Theology of the Hammer
The concept of the theology of the hammer is that our Christian faith mandates that we do more than just talk about faith...we must put faith and love into action to make them real. HFH/MJ volunteers build with low-income families, not for them, building bridges of understanding while eliminating poverty housing.
