Why Affordable Housing Matters

affordableDid you know that 27% of South Carolina children live in poverty? Evidence-based research has shown that when families have stable, decent, accessible and affordable homes they are better able to find employment, achieve mobility and their children perform better in school. Homeownership leads to increases in graduation rates, children’s good health, net family wealth and decreases in children’s behavioral problems, reliance on government assistance, asthma and other health issues.

Seeking Property Donations

landLand cost have become prohibitive in York County yet this is necessary to continue or mission of building affordable housing with qualified families. In addition to new construction, Habitat also rehabs existing homes. We are in need of building lots as well as homes that can help us continue our mission of improving the lives of children and families through our ministry. Habitat supports families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance and ultimately build a better life for their children and themselves.
