Affordable homeownership is the key to building a foundation that allows families, neighborhoods and entire communities to thrive. We know the effect is more than a roof and four walls. Success in school and at work, better financial security and improved health are what many Habitat families experience when they finally have a permanent place to call home. This is why we are proud to fulfill Habitat's mission to, "put God's love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope."
