The 2017 Board Build is a collaboration among the Austin Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors to build an affordable home for a hardworking, low-income family.
We build a home, one board at a time.
What holds our homes together.
Creating space for everyone in the family.
Clear sunshine with a view.
Safety, security and peace of mind.
It's not a home without a roof over your head.
Austin Habitat for Humanity's mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. As members of the Board of Directors for Austin Habitat, we're raising funds and awareness to support this mission. Our goal is to raise $55,000, and we hope you'll join us!
As you may know, our homeowners work very hard for these homes. They qualify by earning 60% or below the median family income, which for a family of four is $46,680. Additionally, each family completes 300 sweat equity hours where they work with volunteers and community members to build their own home and the home of other Habitat families.
When finished, the homes aren't free. Each family buys the home with a zero-profit, 30-year mortgage payable to Austin Habitat. We then use those payments to build more homes for other deserving Austinites. It's a great model and a great organization offering a hand up, not a hand out, to our hard-working, low-income neighbors.
Your donation will help our family partners realize their dream of owning a home. With your help, Austin Habitat can continue to bring more decent, affordable living options to Central Texas.
