What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge is a non-profit, ecumenical housing ministry that works in partnership with deserving, low-income families and the community to eliminate poverty housing through building simple, decent homes. We help build community by involving diverse religious, social and business groups in the construction of homes and neighborhoods. In our 34-year history, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge has renovated and built more than 400 homes in the Baton Rouge metropolitan area. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge, Inc. (HFHGBR) serves a four parish area including East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville, and Ascension Parishes, covering more than 1,500 square miles of land. Habitat is not a handout but a “hand up.” Homes are sold to partner families at no profit, and financed by Habitat with an affordable, no-interest mortgage.

Charting impact

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

Our vision and ultimate goal is to one day eliminate substandard housing from our community by partnering with donors, volunteers and low-income homeowner-partner families to uplift neighborhoods through affordable housing.

Since 1989, Habitat has focused its efforts on building community by uplifting neighborhoods. Habitat has renovated and built more than 400 homes, and of these homes over 85% have been in older and often declining neighborhoods. We have seen that concentrating our building and much needed home repairs in declining neighborhoods can increase property values for the entire area. In 2 1/2 years of building in one local neighborhood, property values rose by $25,000. Our fundraising and volunteer recruitment strategy involves creating and fostering long-term partnerships in our community. Many of Habitat's sponsors have been building with us for over 10 years, some as long as 30+ years and have sponsored up to 32 homes.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge has built over 400 homes in our 34-year history. We are proud to be in the top 3% of U.S. Habitat Affiliates for building capacity. Habitat has built as many as 46 homes in one year and averages 15-20 homes per year. We have a proven history and capacity to build homes in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner.

Every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future. A decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health and success that might have been part of a family’s life for years and in many cases for generations. We have helped over 400 families achieve their goal of homeownership, who otherwise would not have qualified for a traditional mortgage. More than 1,000 children in our community are growing up in a safe, healthy and stable home thanks to Habitat donors and volunteers.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

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.
