About Habitat for Humanity
Millions of Americans have a housing crisis. In fact, 5.1 million American families have "worst-case" housing needs, forced to pay more than half their income for housing, endure overcrowded conditions and/or live in houses with server physical deficiencies.
While the number of families in poverty is growing, the number of affordable rental units is shrinking, and most families who qualify for governmental housing assistance aren't receiving aid.
Habitat for Humanity is changing lives. Working in partnership with low-income families to build decent homes they can afford to buy, Habitat helps to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness.
