Mission

Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity builds community one home, one family at a time by making it possible for low-income families to own decent, affordable homes. We believe that everyone deserves a decent and affordable place to call home. Our mission is much bigger than building homes. Our purpose is to provide low-income families an opportunity to purchase an affordable home so they can stand on their own, find stability and build a safe and secure foundation for their family’s future.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Housing expenditures that exceed 30% of household income indicate a housing affordability problem. According to the annual State of the Nation’s Housing Report from Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, nearly 39 million households can’t afford their housing. In New Mexico, 1 in 8 households spend more than half of their income on housing. These families are forced to make difficult decisions every day. Affordable homeownership allows families to spend more on healthcare and nutritious food. Stable, affordable homeownership positively impacts mental health and children’s educational outcomes by minimizing the disruptions associated with unwanted and frequent moves. Research from the Cincinnati Office of NRC (2003) showed that, compared to children of renters, children of homeowners are 116% more likely to graduate from college, 25% more likely to graduate from high school, 20% less likely to become teenage mothers, have fewer behavior problems.

Charting impact

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

Our most recent neighborhood, the Mesa del Rio 22-home community, will be complete by the end of 2020 and these homes will be sold at a 0% interest to pre-qualified low-income families. We are currently in need of funding to purchase land in order to continue to build affordable homes for qualified low-income families.

Habitat raises funds to purchase land and build affordable homes in a variety of ways. The development team applies for grants, seeks donations from individuals, hosts fundraising events, and offers sponsorship opportunities for organizations to partner with Habitat. In addition, income from ReStore sales and homeowners' mortgage payments help fund the purchase of land and the construction of more homes for low-income families.

Habitat has been building homes since 1987. We have a strong, active volunteer base that helps at the construction site which limits the need to hire paid staff. Habitat oversees and manages the mortgages on the homes it builds and sells and the money earned from the sell of homes goes back into building more homes. Finally, Habitat manages a ReStore, which accepts donations of new and used home improvement materials for resale at discounted prices to the community. The earnings from the retail store cover a significant portion of the operating budget and money raised through philanthropic endeavors goes towards the purchase of land and the construction of homes.

We have built 193 homes by the end of 2019.
We have partnered with 198 low-income low-income families to give them the opportunity to become first time homeowners.
We have not been able to build enough affordable homes to match the need in the community.
