Having a Home Matters

Homeownership imparts substantial social and community benefits. It provides families an opportunity to accumulate wealth and build a stable future. Homeownership is the basis for a number of positive social, economic, family, and civic outcomes. It boosts the educational performance of children, lowers crime rates and lessens welfare dependency, induces higher civic and volunteer participation, and improves health care outcomes.

Why Give to Austin Habitat?

By building and repairing homes in partnership with low-income families, Austin Habitat has been building a better Austin since 1985.

Safe and stable homes are the foundation of successful families and communities.

The affordable housing crisis in our community causes many families to move often or live in overcrowded and deteriorating conditions.
