Habitat homeowners and their families experience a positive, wide-reaching, and permanent impact. Simply having a quiet place to do homework and a safe environment in which to play greatly benefits children. Studies show that children of homeowners are:
20% less likely to become teen parents
25% more likely to graduate from high school
twice as likely to graduate college
60% more likely to own their own homes within ten years of moving out of their parents’ household.
Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads continues to carry out our mission that was established more than 30 years ago.
Here at Habitat SHR, we are committed to making sure that 86% of all donations received to support our housing programs. That means that 86% of every donation directly funds the creation of homeownership opportunities for hardworking, low-income families right here in South Hampton Roads.
