Why Shelter?


Every day, more and more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads.


Caught in punishing cycles of unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded conditions, or lack of access to land and affordable financing, these families live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear.


Habitat for Humanity knows that safe, decent, affordable shelter plays a critical role in helping families to create a new cycle, one filled with possibilities and progress. Affordable homeownership frees families and fosters the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes can be long-lasting and life-changing.
