You’re helping families to break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. Research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children’s educational achievement and strengthens community ties.
We transform lives by helping low income families secure decent and affordable shelter through low construction costs, zero-interest financing, and homeowner education.
Why we do it:
We believe the elimination of poverty housing—helping families to have access to safe, decent and affordable housing—permanently transforms lives and strengthens communities.
How we do it:
Habitat for Humanity's work is made possible through the generosity of individuals, faith groups, businesses, and organizations. Additional funding is derived from Habitat's ReStore.
Who receives Habitat support?
Low income families that have a housing need, the ability to repay a low interest mortgage, and a willingness to partner are eligible for Habitat support.
