Serve Together in Ministry
Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian ministry. Our belief is that all people should have a safe, decent place in which to live. We invite people of all faiths to join our mission to build and renovate simple, decent, affordable houses.
Put Faith into Action
Our mission is about tearing down walls and building bridges. It is about offering hope and transforming lives. It is about serving God by serving others.

Hope for the World--International Tithe Program
One of the values that Habitat Omaha shares with our faith community is tithing; Habitat Omaha donates a portion of our unrestricted cash donations to further Habitat's work in other countries. The concept follows an ancient Biblical tradition in which God asked Israel to sacrifice the first crops of the harvest, trusting that the remainder would be enough to carry them throughout the rest of the year. In exchange for this act of faith was a promise of provision: "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it" (Malachi 3:10).
This promise, as well as Jesus' instructions to care for our neighbors and the vulnerable in society, makes tithing a natural component of Habitat's Christian identity. In essence, it is an act of faith. The Israelites trusted God to provide rain and sun, crops and livestock; Habitat trusts God to provide--through tithe partners--shovels and cement, nails and lumber.
