Our Vision 

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our Mission Statement

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

About Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield County, Ohio

Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All are welcome 

Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Elisha Lorenzi

Elisha Lorenzi

President

Elisha’s passion for interiors started very early at home rearranging her parents furniture everytime they left the house. From there she took her natural born talents to the Columbus College of Art and Design, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Interior Design. While attending school she was seeked out by a nationally well-known and highly respected healthcare architectural firm. From that experience she received nine years of superior mentoring, growth and knowledge of the design industry. In 2009 it was time to take her love for interiors to another level and EML Interiors was established.
