Some Statistics on homeownership

  • Children of homeowners are 116% more likely to graduate from college. 
  • 25% more likely to graduate from high school. 
  • 59% more likely to become homeowners themselves.
  • Homeownership is the single greatest wealth builder in society.

Habitat houses are built with a contribution of three hundred and fifty hours of “sweat equity” labor on the part of the soon-to-be Homeowner. By investing themselves in the building process, Habitat families gain self-reliance, self-esteem, and new skills and learn to care for their new home.
