WHY DONATE TO GREATER JACKSON HABITAT FOR HUMANITY?
Every penny you donate goes toward building a brighter future for families in Jackson County.
Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone should have a decent place to live. We seek to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, hope and community. Your donation will have a valuable impact on a family in our local community.
Greater Jackson Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone deserves safe, decent, affordable housing. You can help us realize that vision by working with us to put our next partner family in their new home. Partner families help build their own home, and then purchase the home with an affordable mortgage. They’re an active part of their own success.
By partnering with Habitat, low income families in our community are able to see the dream of owning a home come true when they may not have had that opportunity otherwise.
100% of the funds you donate will help a low income family in our local Jackson community get out of the ‘rent trap’ and into home ownership. Low income families who rent statistically spend 56-80% of their income on housing. The majority of homeowners spend 20-28% of their income on housing. Home ownership means stability for a family, which has far-reaching impact on communities.
Every penny of your donation will be reserved for our next new house build in 2019. You will be able to follow the story of the family you help put in this home as it develops, on our website, social media, and periodic newsletters. Your support will make a great impact on your local community.
