We build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
Habitat for Humanity partners with people to help them build a place they can call home. To us and millions of people around the world, there is no better expression of love than to help our neighbors purchase their own home.
Every day in the Capital District, families dream of having a healthy, affordable home of their own. Having a stable home in which to live means that children often do better in school, families and communities are healthier, and parents often get better jobs and improve the family's financial situation.
Habitat helps families acquire a forever home.
A family’s partnership with Habitat means they have a stable place to live and to spend time together. An affordable mortgage means they have a chance to create savings and invest in their education. A decent roof over their heads establishes home as a place that protects — instead of endangers — their health.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to grow up and thrive in safe conditions, every parent should have the dignity of providing their kids with a stable home, and every family should have the chance for a decent life. Because of these beliefs, we have set bold goals for the future. To learn more, read our FY17-19 strategic plan here.
