Habitat for Humanity is a world-wide, non-governmental and not-for-profit organization aiming to bring people together to build homes and communities. It was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller and headquartered in Americus, Georgia, USA.
Currently, Habitat for Humanity operates in all 50 US states and over 70 countries – including Canada. Since being founded in 1976, the organization has helped more than 29 million people construct, renovate, or preserve homes. Since 2013, Habitat for Humanity has been the largest not-for-profit builder in the world.
Aid from Habitat from Humanity goes a long way for families in need. As a result of being a Habitat homeowner, research has shown that these families are happier, healthier, and more financially stable, which allows them to return to school as well as learn new skills to make advancements in their work field. As for the children, they tend to feel much more confident and do better in school.
Through reduced dependence on social housing and food banks, better education and improved employment opportunities, every Habitat home built has helped create $175,000 worth of benefits for the local community.
