Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity


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


Eleven facts about Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity 

  1. Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity(MAHFH) is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), and shares the hope and mission of eliminating poverty housing in both our local and global communities.

  4. Our partner families are not given a home, but an opportunity to build confidence, self-worth, and responsibility through home ownership.
  5. In recognition of our global mission, MAHFH regularly tithes to HFHI in order to support decent, affordable housing world-wide, and serve more families.
  6. MAHFH serves Pottawatomie and Riley Counties, with homes built in Manhattan, Ogden, St. George, and Wamego.
  7. Volunteer service is not just encouraged, but necessary to achieving our goals.  Giving members of the community contribute labor, monetary support, and prayer to our mission, involving the community as a whole and growing our family with every new home.

One Home… One Neighborhood… $120,000…

Is the goal we have our eyes set on as we prepare for our next home build this coming March.  This house is a partnership between Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity, Heritage Builders and the local community to help more families have access to decent and affordable housing.  In 2017, for the first time in almost ten years, Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity returns to Manhattan, Kansas to build House #27.


We won’t stop at a single home.  Our House #27 will be built on the historic Yuma Street.  Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with Heritage Builders, intends to revitalize this neighborhood through our Rock The Block Manhattan 2017 initiative.  This neighborhood “spruce up” will assist homeowners with needed home repairs, maintenance, weatherization, safety, accessibility and beautification.
