A Single Habitat Home Touches the Lives of Thousands

The impact that a Habitat for Humanity home has on a community and its families is diverse and far reaching. Each project initiates a ripple effect that touches many, and for years to come.

Each and every Habitat home sees hundreds of community members as well as dozens of local organizations volunteer their time and effort to raise walls and build a roof which ignites a transformation for a local low-income family, as well as the volunteers and partners involved. As a result of people working together, local leaders emerge, communities unite, and organizations are strengthened.

Once a Habitat home is built and dedicated, its effect continues to be felt.

For the partner family that moves in:
- kids do better in school;
- parents’ employment prospects improve; and,
- families report that they are happier, healthier and better equipped to face life’s challenges.

For the surrounding community:
- improved housing attracts economic investment and development;
- reduces reliance on social services and reduces the impact on the surrounding environment; and,
- contributes to thriving school systems and community organizations.

The 360 Built Smart Partnership recognizes that the key to a single Habitat home opens countless doors.

Going beyond funding affordable homebuilding, the 360 Built Smart Partnership takes a conscious and holistic approach by driving funds to support all aspects of the need for affordable housing.
