ABOUT BEACHES HABITAT
This #GivingTuesday, we are asking you to support Beaches Habitat for Humanity! Aside from empowering 45 of our new partner families as they attain home ownership, your generous donation will help to break the cycle of generational poverty. All children who live in Beaches Habitat homes have access to our after school education programs which provide tutoring, mentoring, life skills training, and scholarships to further their hope for a better life!
Did you know that prior to moving into their home, each partner family is required to volunteer in the construction of not only their home but other Beaches Habitat homes as well? Known as “sweat equity” this act of service helps to increase the emotional value of a Habitat home, strengthen the Habitat community, and leverage construction costs for the affiliate.
Upon completion, Habitat homes are sold to our partner families at no profit and financed with zero-interest loans. So in addition to contributing to the construction of their home through sweat equity, each Habitat for Humanity partner family must pay a down payment and monthly mortgage payments. These monthly mortgage payments go into a “Revolving Fund for Humanity” which is then used to construct more Habitat homes.
HOW WILL YOUR MONEY BE USED?
Beaches Habitat for Humanity is built on a foundation of sustainability, every penny of your donation will be used to help sustain and expand our efforts of eliminating substandard housing in our community!
