The Impact of Affordable Housing


With a little help, we all have the potential to stand on our own. Homeownership helps to break cycles of poverty, and allows families to invest in their futures. 90% of Habitat for Humanity Homeowners say that they could not have owned a home without help from Habitat.


Decent, affordable homeownership provides the foundation for a better future. Homeownership leads to improved health and improved school performance in children. Families owning homes are less likely to rely on government assistance and are able to build net family wealth.


Decent, affordable housing benefits not only the homeowner, but also the surrounding community Safe homes and neighborhoods are the foundation to secure communities and schools. Transforming blight into beautiful homes strengthens the pride residents have in their neighborhood.


Adequate housing is vital to the well-being of our economy. Neighborhoods strengthened by decent homes attract economic investment and development. Reduced vacancy and increased tax base creates an economic stimulus which positively impacts community stabilization.
