About HFH Roosevelt & Curry Counties

Habitat for Humanity of Roosevelt and Curry Counties became an affiliate of HFH, International in November, 1999, serving the New Mexico counties of Roosevelt (county seat is Portales, NM) and Curry (county seat is in Clovis). 

The first home built by the affiliate in Portales was completed and the dedication held on March 8, 2003. The first Clovis home was completed and dedicated on August 30, 2005.

The ultimate goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness by building basic but adequate housing. All our words and actions are for the purpose of putting shelter in the hearts and minds of people in such a way that poverty housing and homelessness become socially, politically and religiously unacceptable in our nation and world.

Our immediate goal is to provide an affordable housing alternative to those who would otherwise be unable to live in a decent quality home of their own.  The community also benefits by increased home ownership and home quality among lower-income residents.  This is a "win-win" situation for everyone.

As a grass-roots movement, Habitat for Humanity is decentralized and accepts no government funds. The Roosevelt and Curry Counties affiliate of Habitat is an autonomous, non-profit corporation with its own board of directors and committee structure. The current Board of Directors are:

President: Melveta Walker

Vice President: Alice Harshey-Bischoff

Secretary: Todd Farrell

Treasurer: Alan Herman

Directors:

Jason Carlyle, Doug Hollinghead, Wanda Graham, Dyanne Frazier,

Jean-Marc Gandonou, Lori Brunsen, 

 

 

MISSION VISION: A world where everyeone has a decent place to live.

MISSION STATEMENT: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations (HFH) will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must (i) adhere to or convert to a particular faith or (ii) listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith. 

 

This affiliate is largely supported from funds and donations raised locally. All donations are used as designated by the donor. Any undesignated gifts are used where most needed, and a 10% tithe is shared with global building projects around the world. We have so far funded more then 15 homes around the world.  Habitat for Humanity accepts volunteers to work with the affiliate.  Habitat also encourages prayer, monetary contributions, and donations of labor and other materials.  You can help make this vision a reality by your partnership with Habitat.
