Why should I support Habitat?

Why should I support Habitat?

When you or your organization make the commitment to sponsor a home, you're doing more than just building a house. You are changing lives. Your kindness can mean a little girl gets her very own bedroom for the first time, or that mom and dad no longer have to worry about faulty electrical wires and flooding. You are helping our homeowners build a foundation that leads to better lives. Not just for them, but for generations to come. This is a home where they will teach their children to walk, show them how to tie their shoes and send them off to college. Living in a safe and affordable home is not a luxury, it is a necessity. YOU can make the difference!
