Mission: Seeking to put god's love into action, habitat for humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Programs: Using donations, mortgage payment proceeds and volunteer labor, houston county habitat for humanity built and closed on two homes. Houston county habitat for humanity sells the homes below cost and finances the sale with no-interest loans. These new families bring our total families served through new construction to 53 for fye 2017. 91 adults and over 105 children have been served through new construction. In addition to new home construction, the affiliate expanded the brush with kindness program where we assist low income homeowners in the community with landscaping, yard clean up, painting and repairs. Eight families were served with this program. With staff and volunteer partner advocate liaisons, the affiliate facilitated one-on-one family budget counseling with six habitat homeowners, helping them avoid mortgage foreclosure. We also used our financial literacy program to serve 12 prospective families by helping them prepare for successful homeownership.
