IMG_0596Habitat provides homes for people in need so they may build better lives for their families.

Habitat homes are often sponsored by individuals, companies and communities. The cost to sponsor a Habitat home is $50,000.  Fundraising and wall-raising often go hand-in-hand and we are grateful to the individuals, companies and communities who donate their valuable time as well as their funds to provide these homes. Working on a Habitat build project is a life-changing experience for all involved. Here’s how we do it. You can also download our Fact Sheet.
