Welcome to Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity!
Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to building affordable housing throughout our service area. We are a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry working in partnership with God and the community to build simple, decent, affordable housing, and to provide hope for responsible, hard-working, limited income families living in substandard conditions.
Today, with the support of partners like you, we are continuing this important mission. We have some amazing groups and volunteers working hard to increase our builds for 2013. These will be homes that many of our families have dreamed of home-ownership, and with your support their dreams are coming true. We are also incorporating home rehabs, deconstruction projects and many other collaborative efforts to further support our community with their homes.
We’re excited to partner with the University of Oklahoma’s College of Architecture, with a Compressed Earth Block home build! We are making history in Oklahoma, as these homes have not been build in our area of the country before. After nearly of year of studies, tests and constructing, the OU Engineers and CEB team as developed and designed this home. The team will compare the CEB home to a conventionally wood framed house built on the adjacent lot by CCHFH to National Green Building Standards (NGBS). Both houses will be instrumented, monitored and compared for all aspects of sustainability as defined by the NGBS. The ultimate goal is to design a system whereby Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the United States could use CEB technology to provide affordable housing that is more resistant to wind damage and more environmentally sustainable than those built with conventional technologies.
