Charting impact

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

Goal 1: Expand the number of families we serve in our community and provide the families we serve the best possible experience with Habitat.
Goal 2: Engage community volunteers in our mission through an exceptional volunteer experience.
Goal 3: Increase public awareness and be a leading advocate for decent, safe, affordable housing.
Goal 4: Promote partnerships to eliminate poverty housing.
Goal 5: Ensure that we have the people, skills, and infrastructure in place to meet our mission and to enhance our ability to stretch our goals.
Goal 6: Generate the revenue needed to fully fund mission implementation

Acquire an inventory of land sufficient to meet long- term program needs.
Construct and renovate single-family sustainably built homes.
Provide critical home repairs to families in need.
Broaden and deepen opportunities for volunteer engagement in programs and services.
Develop an Advocacy Agenda.
Continue engagement in strategic partnerships, community coalitions and networks for affordable housing.
Operate the organization with staff and leadership needed for excellence.
Generate the revenue needed to fully fund mission implementation through both fundraising and increasing ReStore profits.
Staff and Board Succession Planning and organization dynamics

With a new Executive Director, excellent staff, and a motivated board, we are making significant progress towards our goals.

In FY21 we will be able to build one more house than anticipated. We have also created the crucial infrastructure to launch a Repairs program. We were able to update technology in the ReStore to make for smoother interactions and secured some generous donations of building supplies that were very popular sellers.
