Sustainable Housing


Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County

Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County is a non-profit independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.  Their staff is dedicated to building affordable housing for low income families. They accomplish this by constructing energy-efficient homes with the help of a volunteer workforce and supplementing their materials budget through donations and profits from their Re-Store located in St. Peters.


It is incredible to see what 1st Financial is doing for their community.  We are so thankful for the donation as well as the volunteer work 1st Financial provided on our jobsite.  With the help we have received from 1st Financial, our 2014 Leadership Build is one step closer to being completed for our family. Thank you for helping us to realize our vision where everyone has a decent place to live.
