Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Habitat for Humanity creates access to affordable housing for low-to-moderate income families who have steady income and solid credit but do not qualify for a traditional mortgage. Creating opportunities for families to become homeowners results in long-term success in the community, including generating business for the local economy and higher civic engagement.

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

Building homes

HFHWM serves as a developer and general contractor of our Craftsman-styled homes. We are responsible for land acquisition, development planning, and securing zoning and other approvals. All homes meet Energy-Star
certification specifications and ADA standards. We also reserve a number of homes each year for families with special needs. We also serve as the mortgage lender on all our houses, carrying the 20-year, 25-year or 30-year affordable mortgages. 

The average home cost in Williamson County is about $433,000; the average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment is
more than $1,300 per month and 65% of renters pay 30% or more of household income for rent.

Comparatively, monthly mortgage costs of a Habitat home (currently selling for $145,000, depending on size and location) range from $550 to $650, including property taxes and insurance. Even including maintenance and utility costs, this is usually much less than what families would most likely pay for local rental housing.

HFHWM ReStore is a home improvement store selling new and gently used home furnishings and building materials at significant discounts. The store offers appliances, construction items, furniture, and home décor, and is open to the general public, as well as
to contractors and Habitat homeowners. The ReStore also provides an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep thousands of good, reusable materials out of landfills. It also raises enough each year to fund the construction of two homes.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Partner families are recruited,
qualified and selected based on 1) living in inadequate/substandard/rent-burdened housing; 2) having limited income (30 - 60% of Area Median Income);
and 3) being willing to earn up to 500 hours of “sweat equity” by building their and their neighbor's homes, attending mandatory homebuyers’ education classes, and saving $2,500 for closing costs. Working with volunteers from local banks and finance departments, HFHWM
provides Homebuyer Education classes for its future homeowners. Budgeting and personal finance classes
prepare the applicants to handle the monetary requirements of buying a home and help them plan to reduce debt and increase savings. The sessions on home
maintenance and the legal aspects of home buying and ownership provide
practical knowledge and resources for the new homeowners. These classes build confidence and the foundation for the continued success of the Habitat
homeowners.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

More than 2,400 volunteers contribute over 19,000 hours annually to help build a stronger future for partner families, their children, and the community. These volunteers work as construction crew leaders, home builders, ReStore staff, administrative/fundraising
support, and members of the Board of Directors. Roughly 70 percent of an average 10-day build schedule for a Habitat house is completed through volunteer labor.
Volunteers experience the pride and satisfaction of being part of a team-based effort. Home construction also provides an opportunity for individuals from
different socio-economic backgrounds to interact in a meaningful way for the benefit of the future homeowner and the community. The work experience creates
bonds and friendships between volunteers and homeowners who otherwise would never have met. It also promotes understanding among all involved of what it means to make a visible, permanent difference in the communities in which they live, work, and study.

Charting impact

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

Our mission as a whole is to put God’s love into action, by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. This is all with the ultimate goal of having a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury serves residents with incomes of between thirty to sixty percent of the area median income and who do not qualify for a conventional mortgage financing. Habitat provides homeownership training that covers financial education, home maintenance, and estate planning, all which set partner families up for success.

Williamson County, one of our service areas, has fair market rents that average $1200 a month. The average home sold in Williamson County is more than $500,000. A household making less than $3773 a month is considered overburdened with these housing costs, making home ownership often out of reach for even a moderate-income family.

The Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury Home Build is a collaborative effort with Habitat, community partners, and volunteers to build one home for a qualifying future homeowner. The anticipated impact is to sell one affordable home to a family who has completed the Habitat for Humanity Homeowner Education Program, saved $2500 for closing costs, maintained steady employment, debt income ratio and good credit standing, to ensure home-ownership sustainability. HFHWM has a staff of 20 and long-term community partnerships that make the mission possible.

To date we have built more than 250 homes in Williamson and Maury counties and continue to build 10-12 new homes per year. In our 2020-2021 Fiscal Year, we are building 12 homes in partnership with Habitat families, volunteers, businesses, and churches.
