At the heart of our mission is the belief that everyone deserves a safe and decent place to call home. Through theyears with the dedication of our volunteers, and the generosity of our donors we have built more than 1,220 newhomes that serve as pillars of hope for individuals and families in need of affordable housing. We like to say that everyHabitat home is a miracle because it truly signifies an opportunity for a family to achieve stability and break thecycle of poverty. Similar to Jolene, a single mother raising three children, she never believed owning her own home wasattainable. Today, she proudly owns her property and eagerly anticipates hosting birthday parties for her granddaughter.
We also recognize that affordable housing extends beyond new construction and includes the preservation andimprovement of existing housing stock. Our growing repair program focuses on critical repairs and accessibilitymodifications. Through this program, we address critical needs such as leaky roofs, faulty plumbing, and electricalissues. These repairs not only enhance the quality of life for homeowners but also contribute to the overall vitality andstability of the neighborhoods we serve. By revitalizing neighborhoods we can help families like Narlie’s. Narlie and herfamily live in Sunnyslope and endured record heat for two weeks in July 2023 when their air conditioner failed. With limitedincome and limited options, Narlie contacted Habitat and was able to afford a new HVAC. She is grateful for this blessingand the donors who made it possible, saying it came at the right time to help her family. Click the images below to read the full issue!
