North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity feels blessed to be part of an amazing network of Habitat affiliates within Habitat International. With the recognition of this wonderful brand name, however, sometimes come a set of false assumptions. Habitat hopes to counter these false ideas in a series of "Myths and Truths" published each Tuesday.

MYTH: Habitat for Humanity builds only in cities --- or builds only in rural areas.

TRUTH: Habitat --- through local affiliates –- is at work in cities, suburbs, and rural areas in highly developed counties and in developing countries. Because poverty housing is so widespread, Habitat’s work goes on 365 days a year in locations throughout the United States and around the world.
