Reports & Finances
Families who partner with Habitat for Humanity are extremely grateful for your help. A decent home gives them the strength, stability and independence they need to create a better life for themselves and their families.
Homeowners help build their homes and pay an affordable mortgage
Thanks to our significant volunteer support, construction costs are kept low and Habitat is able to sell new houses to qualified families with an affordable mortgage. All mortgage (and home repair) payments are recycled back into our building program, creating a perpetual endowment of sorts.
The ReStore (including Deconstruction) also generates sustainable income for our building programs.
Mortgage payments and ReStore proceeds account for approximately 25% of the revenue we need to acquire and develop land, build new houses and repair existing homes.
