Habitat is moving into 2021 with encouragement and hope. The need for affordable housing has not changed, if anything, it’s become even more pronounced. Today, one in six families pay half or more of their income on their rent or mortgage, often choosing between paying for housing or nutritious food, reliable transportation or healthcare needs. 

Your home shouldn’t cost you anywhere near half your paycheck. Home shouldn’t cost you your health or your children’s education. When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.

You have the opportunity to sponsor the 2021 Birdhouse Auction and support Habitat’s on-going vision of providing decent and affordable housing for all.  Your support can literally “Build a Home” and help a Habitat family find their “forever” home.
