Founded in 1996, HFH Beius became the first Habitat affiliate in Romania. Habitat for Humanity Beius (HFH Beius) is a non profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry, an affiliate of HFH International, seeking to eliminate poverty housing in the Beius community, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. HFH Beius invites people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to build homes with families in need.
HFH Beius renovates and builds homes in collaboration with partner families and international and local volunteer labor. Homes are then sold to partner families at no profit, and are financed with affordable, no-interest loans.
HFH Beius is a hand up, not a hand out. Partner families (families that are selected to collaborate with HFH Beius to build a home) pay back the home mortgage over 20 years at no interest, and invest till 1000 hours of sweat equity labor on other Habitat homes.
Until 2006 Habitat for Humanity Beius has built simple, decent and affordable homes with 67 families. This has only been made possible through the financial and physical support of local and international volunteers. The money to construct homes in Beius comes from:
- International tax-deductible donations;
- Grants from Habitat for Humanity International;
- Local donations of construction material;
- The Revolving Fund for Humanity: monthly mortgage payments from current HFH Beius homeowners.
For other net participants we can offer expert guidance through trained staff, deliver a lecture and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
