At Habitat for Humanity, we don’t just build homes. We dedicate our time and expertise to improving the lives of local families. When you give, families in your very own community can receive a hand up instead a hand out. We ensure that hardworking families have a chance to escape the cycle of poverty, resulting in a better life for their children and generations to come. Studies have shown that families who received a Habitat home saw an increase in education, quality of health and physical activity. As their lives improve, they begin to use social support systems less and less. They make greater contributions to other charities and the local community. When you give to Habitat, you build a better future.
