Working to End Substandard Housing in Our Area of the World
Our Mission: Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating houses, so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which every person can experience God's love and can live and grow in all that God intends.

Wells Fargo Awards $10,000 to Junction City/Harrisburg/Monroe Habitat for Humanity
Wells Fargo Vice President and Community Banking District manager Kyle Banks presented a $10,000 check to Junction City/Harrisburg/Monroe Habitat for Humanity Construction Supervisor Hank Harris and Executive Director Jon Silvermoon at the affiliate's current build at 500 South 6th in Harrisburg. About a dozen Wells Fargo employees volunteered at the site to help build a house for Heather and Maxwell Franklin and their three children: Cloud (8), Chikane (3), and Layla (9 months).
Executive Director Jon Silvermoon thanked the Wells Fargo volunteers and said that the $10,000 donation would help fund the final construction tasks necessary to finish the house. A Dedication Ceremony for the Franklin Family home is planned for late June. Wells Fargo is one of the largest sources of funding and volunteers to Habitat for Humanity in Oregon and in the nation.
Interested in Becoming a Habitat Partner Family?
Families interested in partnering should consider the following questions:
1. Do you live or work within the Junction City, Harrisburg or Monroe school district boundaries?
2. Are you living in inadequate housing?
3. Is your current housing unsafe?
4. Are you over-crowded?
5. Do you have sufficient income to repay the no-interest mortgage, generally 30-60% of HUD's median income for the service area?
6. Are you willing to partner with Habitat by contributing 500 “sweat equity” hours on Habitat projects, including construction of your own home?
