Established in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is a non-governmental organization and Christian housing ministry with operations on a global scale. It works with people from all backgrounds to help build decent homes for families who are in need. Since its founding, it has helped out over 6.8 million people.

Over the years, habitat for Humanity has established partnerships with several companies who believe in its mission. For over 34 years, Habitat for Humanity has been partners with Dow Chemical Co., a Michigan-based multinational chemical corporation. Through Dow's product and volunteer contributions, Habitat for Humanity has built thousands of homes. As a matter of fact, the Dow-Habitat partnership has recently celebrated its 50,000th home. In order to celebrate this milestone, Dow formed a partnership with Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity to help build a new house in Freeland, Michigan
