Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Homeownership

We build more than homes. Through the power of homeownership, we help people achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their family. Habitat homebuyers invest sweat equity, helping build their own homes alongside volunteers, and pay an affordable mortgage. In turn, decent, affordable homes help build strong and stable communities.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Habitat Bucks has four broad strategic goals:
1. We will build a sustainable organization so that we can meet affordable homeownership needs over the long-term.
2. We will build community impact by serving more families than ever before.
3. We will build more sector impact by serving more fully in the affordable housing space.
4. We will build societal impact by expanding awareness of affordable housing as a critical foundation for healthier, financially stable lives.

Goal 1 - Build a sustainable organization
a. Enhance employee engagement.
b. Invest in the development of new team members, especially in the construction field, by partnering with local trade schools and community colleges.
c. Invest in back-office systems and cybersecurity to ensure team members have the technology to fulfill their duties.
d. Continue to develop the strength of our current ReStore operations and expand into Upper Bucks County for sustainable funding to support mission programming.

Goal 2 - Build community impact
a. Build/rehab 5 homes annually.
b. Repair 100 homes annually.
c. Financially empower 100 families annually.

Goal 3 - Build sector impact.
a. Assess the feasibility of other affordable housing solutions such as tiny homes, multi-family housing, redeveloping a strip mall, and 3-D home printing.
b. Seek ways to collaborate with other nearby Habitat affiliates to ensure Bucks County Habitat is thinking of housing on a regional scale.
c. Expand our collaboration with other local nonprofit partners in further service to the Bucks County community.

Goal 4 - Build societal impact.
a. Work with other affiliates and housing advocates on state and local policy changes that would expand affordable homeownership opportunities.
