What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In Southwest Florida and throughout the United States, families are spending too much to cover the cost of their home. At Habitat for Humanity, we believe that every family deserves a safe, decent, and affordable place to live. Through our affordable homeownership program, Habitat empowers hardworking families to break the cycle of poverty, achieve stability, and build the foundation for a better life.

Charting impact

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

Habitat homes are built through the use of volunteer labor and donations of money and materials. The homes are then sold to low-income families with low to no interest mortgage and monthly payments set at 30% or less of the homeowner's income, making homeownership an affordable reality. The organizations goal is to give a hand up to as many families in the community as possible.

To continue educating and working with local authorities to reduce certain fees for Habitat that will allow us to increase the number of homes we can build in the future.

Educate prospective homeowners of the various finance responsibilities they have after they are qualified and selected for their home.

We have a very seasoned and educated staff that knows how to reach out to businesses and communities in our area to continue our increased fundraising goals.

We are increasing the number of our ReStores to assist in our donation expansion for additional revenue. This will assist to expand our mission and awareness to other areas.

We continue to outpace the prior year in revenues, maintain or reduce expenses is some areas and increase the number of homes we build each year.

Also, we established a new program and will continue our Disaster Relief Program for repairs with homeowners that were effected by Hurricane Irma. Qualified families in Lee and Hendry apply and are qualified in order to participate.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
