What your dollar buys

When a family helps build or improve a place they can call home, they are also building a better community, a better life for themselves.

Your donation will help families in need of a decent place to build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds.

Thanks to you, Habitat is transforming lives in your community and around the world.

  • $25 Door Lock: A secure front door lock provides a family with something they may have never had before — security.
  • $50 Low Flow Toilet: It may be hard to believe, but there are people living here in the U.S. who don’t have working toilets in their homes or any running water. A low-flow toilet is environmentally friendly, which means better health and proper sanitation for a Habitat family.
  • $100 Bedroom Window: When you install a new window in a Habitat home, you’re providing the opening to a brighter future. It’s more than a window, it’s a symbol of opportunity and hope. It’s the promise of a better tomorrow.
  • $500 Wheelchair Ramp: We want to make it possible for everyone to remain in their existing home. A permanent ramp and handrail leading to the front door ensure greater accessibility for a physically challenged homeowner.
  • $1,000 Home Siding: Siding doesn’t just make a house look good, it provides a shield of protection against harsh weather, destructive pests, such as termites, and dangerous mold and mildew. Siding puts the essential finishing touch on a Habitat home and gives a family the security and stability they need.
