Goals & Strategy

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

To bring an end to substandard housing conditions in which families live.

We partner with businesses, faith communities, foundations, and individuals in our community to raise funds to build homes in partnership with families in need.

We work with over 3,000 volunteers a year to build homes and repair homes in our community along with paid, knowledgeable staff.

In 2022 at the close of the fiscal year on March 31, 2022 we completed construction on our 218th home and 170 homes repaired. Over the 36 years of our organization we have provided a means to homeownership and safe living conditions to over 900 families.
