Why Homeownership Matters

You may wonder why Habitat encourages homeownership, is owning a home really better than renting? While it is not always possible to own a home, and maybe it’s not right for everyone, there are reasons why we pour so much effort into helping people become homeowners.

Our solution offers a hand-up, not a hand-out. Homeowners have an affordable mortgage, and put many hours of “sweat equity” into their home. Families work alongside staff and volunteers, building their home and learning valuable skills along the way.

If you would like to help, or if you would like to be considered for a Habitat home, here are a few ideas:
