Safe homes. Nutritious foods on the table. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation. Which would you choose?

Your home shouldn’t cost you anywhere near half your paycheck. Home shouldn’t cost you your health. Home shouldn’t cost you your kids’ education. When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.  

Join Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County to advocate for affordable housing. Because home is the foundation for everything.

The Wilder Research Center investigated the connection between homeownership and the quality of life, including safety, health, education, social connectedness, family interaction, personal well-being, and economic situations. Since moving into their homes, Habitat homeowners reported improvement in almost all areas. Read the full report.
