is a partnership, not a giveaway program—Habitat’s homeowner families buy the houses that Habitat builds and renovates. Habitat homeowners also invest hundreds of hours of their own labor working alongside volunteers. As a result, Habitat for Humanity houses are affordable to low-income families around the world.
Here at Decatur Area Habitat for Humanity, we are dedicated to building homes and helping families in our city. We give families an opportunity to pay an affordable mortgage and better their lives through our organization, and we appreciate the continuous support the community has given us. All the support we receive from donations and profit from our ReStore shop helps our organization further support families just like Maria.
The Waterman family, AL, a U.S Air Force Veteran, his wife Xin, and son Zhao have been volunteering and partnering with Decatur Area Habitat for Humanity since 2008. They have put in twice the amount of sweat equity to build a place they can call home and have been selected to be Habitat homeowners in 2016. We want to help the Watermans have a place they can call home and our organization will greatly appreciate any donations to help fund this project.
