I'm raising $5,000 for a low-income, hardworking family in Austin. All of our money raised will go directly towards the cost of building materials for the home.
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.
I am so proud to serve on the Board of Directors for Austin Habitat for Humanity! I'm raising funds and awareness to support our mission. I hope you'll join me!
My goal is to raise $5,000! As you 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 $43,920.Each family puts $1,000 cash down on their homes and works off the rest of the down payment in 300 sweat equity hours building others homes before they start on their own.
When finished, the homes aren't free. Each family buys the home with a zero-percent, 30-year mortgage payable to Austin Habitat. We then use those payments to build more homes.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.
