Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that partners with people in a community to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes in conjunction with volunteers and then pay an affordable mortgage. This is a partnership with a community, not a giveaway program. Homeowner families also invest hundreds of hours of their own labor in their home. This enables low-income families an opportunity to become first-time homeowners.
According to the Habitat for Humanity official website, in fiscal year 2017, 3.5 million people worldwide were able to obtain affordable housing and an additional 2.6 million people also are now able to improve their housing conditions through indirect services. The organization will now be offering that opportunity to a family in the local area.
