Building new homes and repairing existing ones that are in need of safety or accessibility repairs are at the heart of what we do. Helping families move out of poverty housing and into their own homes is life-changing for them as well as for the many volunteers who help us.
Statistics prove that home ownership creates economically vibrant communities, improves children’s educational achievements and provides family stability. The stability of a decent, affordable home brings a better quality of life that reaches far beyond bricks and mortar.
