What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Anyone who has lived in the Spokane area for more than a few years is well aware of the dramatic changes in the housing market. There is currently a lack of housing in the market, and prices have increased dramatically, the ability to borrow and obtain these homes is out of reach due to stagnant wages, inability to save for a significant down payment, and limited lending sources available to make homeownership possible for those with limited incomes. The facts below illustrate the current housing crisis: • Of the families in the Spokane Metropolitan Statistical Area, almost 25% live in homes with one or more conditions that threaten their safety or health. • Homeownership among low-income families is below 50%. In the West Central neighborhood, only 31% of the residents own their own homes. • The median household income is $30,560. • Washington ranks shockingly low for housing opportunities available to low-income families. • 1% Vacancy Rate in affordable homes in Spokane County.

Charting impact

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

Habitat's mission and goals are a direct reflection of the urgent need for decent and affordable housing in our community, especially among lower-income families, the BIPOC community and undeserved individuals. Habitat is unique--we provide opportunities for homeownership and supply a lasting and permanent solution to a family's housing crisis. We believe that as many families as possible should have the opportunity to own a home and build equity in the "American Dream."

Founded in 1987, Habitat for Humanity-Spokane has built or rebuilt more than 330 homes throughout the Spokane area, providing decent and stable housing for families who would otherwise be trapped in a perpetual cycle of instability, poverty and inadequate housing.

Habitat families buy their homes, making mortgage payments no more than 30% of their monthly income or an average of approximately $450. Habitat reinvests payments into the program to build more homes for families.

How Habitat is Different:
• Habitat is a permanent, lasting solution to a family's housing crisis.
• Habitat delivers affordable homeownership to families with incomes below 80% of the AMI.
• Habitat fully engages thousands of volunteers in the direct production of housing.
• No other organization invests so much in preparing its families to be successful homeowners.

The impact of Habitat is profound. A Habitat home not only provides a decent living environment for the family, but also revitalizes entire communities--raising property values, increasing the tax base and supporting surrounding businesses are all positive outgrowths of Habitat's efforts. This "ripple effect" produces significant financial benefits for neighborhoods where Habitat homes are located.
