Every home is a building block. Having a decent place to live and the availability of an affordable mortgage or loan means Habitat homeowners can save money, increase education and opportunity, and have more financial stability. Every family needs a foundation to build a better future. Every Habitat homeowner's sweat equity hours are completed with nothing less than temerity; and it is this determination that leads them to the front door of their dream--a home they helped build. A home of their very own.
Every person has something to contribute and something to gain from helping Habitat and its partner families create communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live.
Your gift does much more than help families escape from unsafe, unhealthy living conditions. You're helping families to break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. Habitat's affordable, non-profit housing payments free up money for food, child care, medicine, and other necessities. Research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children's educational achievement and strengthens community ties. Your donations will help families like the Hitch's, Hayes and Matthew's transform their lives and, at the same time help the Church Street neighborhood prosper. By giving a hand-up to low-income neighbors, you not only enrich their lives but also improve the quality of life for all of us in Wicomico County. Habitat has created neighborhoods of families invested in their community, who pay taxes and care about their children's schooling. Your good work touches us all. Because of you we are nearing completion of our 67th Habitat home!
