A Habitat home is a stabilizing force for a family. Better affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development and the ability – and financial flexibility – to make forward looking choices.
A recent Wilder Research study of Habitat homeowners found that more than 90% feel better about their children’s futures since moving into their new homes. They observe improved study habits, improved grades and an increase in family educational savings and aspirations.
“It’s truly hard to express what having a Habitat home has done for my family, but I know I would not have gone on to a great four-year university, I wouldn’t have the same aspirations, I wouldn’t be as ambitious as I am without having had that home. That home has blessed me with a wonderful life.”
