What your dollar buys

With your help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

  • $25 Door Lock: A secure front door lock provides a family 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 ensures 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 giving a family the security and stability they need.
