Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Housing in Texas is becoming increasingly unaffordable, be it rental units or homeownership. In January 2020, The Texas Tribune published an article citing results from a study conducted by the Harvard University Joint Center for Housing Studies. According to data collected in 2018, "nearly half of Texas households that rent were considered moderately or severely cost burdened by 2018." Cost burdened is defined as those persons who spend between 30% and 50% of their household income on rent. And severely cost burdened means they spend more than 50%. Texas as a whole has lost around 586,000 units under $800 a month in 10 years while gaining more than a million rental units costing $1,000 a month or more. “Texas is very unaffordable for the lowest income households,” said Airgood-Obrycki. “This is true everywhere across the country, but when we look across the states, Texas does have one of the highest burden rates for low-income renters who are making less than $15,000.”

Charting impact

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

Habitat Pasadena is the only single family home builder in Pasadena. It is our goal to ensure that low income families in Pasadena are given the opportunity to own their own home and increase the number of families in Pasadena that contribute to the overall economic growth and stimulus of the area.
Habitat Pasadena is also an advocate for affordable housing statewide.
In addition to affordable housing, Habitat Pasadena supports the idea of " Aging in Place" by assisting seniors in building ramps, or converting bathrooms, where it is safer to stay in their own homes longer.
Finally, Habitat Pasadena was called into action after Hurricane Harvey to help with muck and gut, distributing goods, and finally repairs.

How does Habitat for Humanity work to address the needs in our community:
We build. We repair and rehabilitate. We advocate for vital resources to build homes and improve communities. We partner with families to improve — and stabilize — their housing conditions.

Habitat Pasadena believes in education as a key to success and encourages and provides opportunities for old, new and future partner families to become the most successful homeowner they can be.

Habitat believes in no builders mark-up and keeping the houses as affordable as possible in order to serve low-income families, as defined by the Housing and Urban Development department.

Habitat works with other local organization to help in their repair programs, providing equipment, support and supplies as needed. We also work with those organizations on referrals to other organizations. Partnerships with groups like, Texas Ramp Projects, Team Rubicon, the local Kiwanis Clubs and other organizations give us access to funds, skilled volunteers, and like-minded persons who want to help their communities thrive.

Habitat Pasadena maintains a continuing homeowner education serious with all partner families. These education classes include budgeting, estate planning, energy conservation and has even included financial aid tips for your graduating senior.

Additionally, Habitat writes grants to help families with down-payment assistance, and to offset the cost of the homes. Furthermore, Habitat Pasadena has been awarded HOME funds to help with the cost of land and infrastructure.

Habitat Pasadena is also fortunate to have some great gifts-in-kind donations from local business that allow the affiliate to pass the savings of the construction on to the homeowner.

With an all volunteer construction crew and only one full-time paid staff member, and 1 paid part-time construction leaders, the administrative expenses are very small. The Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene has graciously provided our affiliate with office space, free of charge, and is a wonderful partner in many of the activities that Habitat does to help in the community.

As part of the communities Disaster Response Team, Habitat Pasadena is able to continue to work closely with the City to ensure that those who need the most help, are receiving the most help. Even when there is not a disaster, Habitat Partners with the City to help with their Team Up 2 Clean Up initiative which focuses on the needs of the elderly and disabled populations who need help in basic yard and home maintenance, from painting to mowing, to minor roof and home repairs.

We have accomplished building 39 homes with an all volunteer construction team.
We have accomplished a non foreclosure rate.
We have accomplished a consistent team of regular volunteers and an executive director that have been dedicated to the organization for 15 years or more.
We have accomplished acquiring and establishing a subdivision which has it's own HOA and restrictions and is run by the new homeowners.
We have received almost $300,000 since 2017 to help in home repairs since Hurricane Harvey.

We have not yet accomplished building the walking path and beautification project around the retention pond.
We have not yet accomplished securing land for building beyond our 5 year plan.
