Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country’s mission is simple. We are an independently-operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry. We believe that every man, woman, and child should have a decent, safe, and affordable place to live. We build with people in need regardless of race or religion and welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
Since 1989, Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country has built six homes and renovated one within Carbon and Emery County for low-income families, our Habitat Homes. In order to expand our impact in southeast Utah, Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country shifted focus towards a critical home repair program known as A Brush with Kindness (ABWK). The introduction of A Brush with Kindness to the area has proven both successful and necessary. Since November 2013 we have completed thirty-five projects, directly improving the lives of sixty-three individuals, and investing $22,439.70 into critical home repairs. As we continue to complete projects, our organization has gained more regular community exposure and has been able to help more families.
