What we do
Why we do it
Housing prices in Austin continue to rise, making it harder for low-income families to buy or rent. Austin Habitat offers them the opportunity to buy a home that is affordable on their budget, helping to keep Austin the diverse and vibrant city that we love. HYP is committed to this goal and to the professional development of Austin's leaders. HYP helps its members develop and improve their leadership skills through a variety of social, service, and educational opportunities. It's also a great opportunity for those interested in being on a nonprofit board and advancing their careers.
