“Habitat for Humanity helps the city financially, it helps
the city socially, it helps the city in all kinds of ways... People that never thought they could own a home find themselves owning a
home. It gives people hope.”
“I have to rob Peter to pay Paul
to pay the rent. It’s almost a
thousand dollars [per month], substantially more than the mortgage payment
will be for my new Habitat home.
Finally, I will have a place that is mine."

STRATEGIC Plan IMPACT.2020
To serve our community through the provision of a wide spectrum of housing solutions:
The majority of Habitat homeowners report improved health outcomes and expanded educational opportunities
Family income can increase by as much as 6% each year a Habitat homeowner is in their home
Transitioning renters into homeownership frees up more rental capacity within the city to absorb growing demand
of LOCAL homeowners consider themselves Cost-burdened
of these homeowners are elderly
As a result, many of these
families end up having to vacate their homes because of the expenses of upkeep
are too great.
For elderly homeowners, affordable repairs ensure greater potential for aging-in-place and quality of life.
HFHWFC's strategic imperative is to help transform and strengthen communities.
Solution:Revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community, and help preserve affordable housing stock through our Neighborhood Revitalization Critical Home Repair Program

"The National Council of Nonprofits opposes the offloading of government services onto nonprofits without paying nonprofits the cost of providing these services. When federal, state, and local revenue is reduced, nonprofits providing public services through [federal and state] grants typically receive disproportionate cuts."
