What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Habitat for Humanity exists because people are in need of decent and affordable housing everywhere, including right here in Brown County. While the majorities of Americans feel stable and secure in their current situation, housing insecurity touches nearly half of adults at some point in their lives. Housing instability, including frequent moves, overcrowding, and the threat of eviction, creates stress, depression and hopelessness for far too many families. Adults living in housing that they struggle to afford often describe themselves as less healthy, and the well-being and development of children is compromised by living in insecure housing. Families paying too high a percentage of their income for housing often find themselves making impossible choices. Rent or health care? Food or transportation? The 2016 Life Study reported that among renter-occupied households in Brown County, 44% were housing cost burdened, meaning those households spent 30% or more of their income on housing.

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

Homeownership

Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity builds new construction homes in the Green Bay area and sells them to qualified families at no profit. The Habitat program provides benefits to our partner families and the Green Bay community. Families benefit from decent, affordable housing while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods and an increase in tax revenue. The Habitat program does not give houses away. Families must spend “sweat equity” hours helping to build their home, pay a $900 down payment, and make monthly mortgage payments. Homes are made affordable due to the volunteer labor used to build the home and the 0% interest mortgage provided by Habitat.

Charting impact

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

Housing is central to ending the cycle of poverty and it also plays a role in the economy as well. Knowing this, we have two primary objectives we wish to accomplish through our Homeownership Program:

1. Impacting individuals and families so they can live a more self-sufficient life.
• We know homeownership is a form of wealth accumulation through equity and forced savings from mortgage repayment. This plays a key role in positively influencing a family’s education, employment, and health opportunities.

2. Improving the neighborhood and community as a whole by increasing home values in areas where we build, adding dollars to the county tax roll and spending money in the local economy.
• Since our inception in 1987, we have been successful in adding $9.2 million to the tax roll in Brown County through our Homeownership Program

The first step in becoming a Habitat homeowner is to attend an informational Application Meeting. At the informational session, you will find out about our program, see what a typical Habitat home looks like, and learn how to accurately complete your application. Applicants and co-applicants must attend a meeting to receive an application; you will have 30 days from that date to turn in your completed application and required documents. This meeting will take approximately 1 hour. The application process takes approximately 60-90 days from the date Habitat receives your completed application.

Habitat homeowners will experience a positive connection between the ownership of a Habitat home and their quality of life in the areas of:
• Health
o Indicator: Family has had to go to doctor less often since moving into Habitat home
o Indicator: Family’s overall health has improved since moving into Habitat home
• Education
o Indicator: Children’s grades in school have improved since moving into Habitat home
o Indicator: Children’s attendance in school has improved since moving into Habitat home
o Indicator: Household member started or completed higher education since moving into Habitat home.

Since our inception in 1987, the Greater Green Bay affiliate remains true to this mission. Our record of achievement is one of which we are enormously proud. In the last 32 years, we have built 120 homes and served over 550 individuals in Brown County. We have reclaimed lots in blighted neighborhoods and have helped restore and revitalize communities in Brown County. Over $11.6 Million Dollars has been added to the Brown County tax base through our efforts. Currently, we spend approximately $950,000 per year with local suppliers and contractors in the course of building Habitat homes.

Our hope is to continue to increase the amount of families that we serve each year through our Homeownership and Home Repairs programs.
