Amid this global health crisis many not for profits are trying to adapt so as to maintain employees and continue important mission work.
At Habitat for Humanity Dutchess, we build homes. We believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy affordable place to call home.
- We build because we know that children are 25% more likely to graduate from High School and 18% more likely to attend College if they live in a home owned by their parents.
- We know that children are healthier in family-owned homes.
- We know that a decent home gives families the strength, stability and independence that they need to create a better life for themselves and their children.
Did you know that 1/3 of Dutchess County residents pay half or more of their income on a place to live. That means that 1 in 3 are denied the personal and economic stability that safe, decent affordable housing provides. Instead 1 in 3 people are forced to make impossible choices; safe homes, nutritious food on the table, health care, access to good schools- which would you choose?
Your donation can help us continue to support families in Dutchess County through affordable home ownership.
