Home is the Key

Throughout the month of April, Habitat and select national partners will focus on the fundamental housing issues in the United States, calling national attention to the need for affordable housing and raising funds to drive lasting change.

We believe that home is the foundation for our lives, and it should provide an atmosphere of contentment and calm where individuals can thrive. Everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home.

Yet for many families in the United States, the concept of home seems out of reach. Often, this is a result of families living in inadequate conditions or paying rent beyond their means. Home has become a place that families need to escape from, rather than escape to.

When we join together to provide access to decent housing opportunities, the effects can be felt across entire communities.  After all, it takes a thriving community of people to build thriving neighborhoods. You are touching the lives of real people working toward strength, stability and self-reliance.

Throughout the month of April, Habitat will be highlighting the need for affordable housing and raise funds to make lasting change in our community. Habitat homeowners work alongside volunteers, painting walls, pounding nails and pay an affordable mortgage.
