Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity believes affordable housing is critical to the health and stability of families and communities. By building homes in the US and around the world, Habitat for Humanity is helping to improve the lives of families for generations to come.

In addition to building homes for families, the nonprofit helps older adults improve their homes so they can enjoy their senior years. An estimated 19 million older adults “are living in homes that are in disrepair or inadequate for their needs and unable to access resources to make these places livable,” according to Habitat for Humanity.

The organization’s person-centered approach involves assessing the unique needs of a home from a holistic perspective and connecting older adults with social services to address age-related issues, such as health, hunger, isolation and lack of transportation.

Habitat for Humanity also works to:

  • Revitalize neighborhoods by partnering with local residents and community leaders to address real concerns and improve lives.
  • Provide shelter assistance, education, training and partnerships to individuals impacted by disasters.
  • Develop programs that will pursue new strategies to assist families in need of a home.
  • Provide financial education to support families pursuing homeownership.
