Help build strength and stability
At Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. When a family helps build a place they can call home, they also build a better community, a better life for themselves.
Your donation will help families in need of a decent place to build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in the many ways that Habitat builds.
Thanks to you, Habitat is transforming lives throughout the Wasatch Back.
Why donate to Habitat?
Affordable housing makes a difference:
Housing can powerfully affect a child’s ability to thrive. Studies show that kids who live in safe, affordable homes are healthier, happier and do better in school.
Lower housing costs mean people can invest more in education. In 2015, researchers found that almost two-thirds of Habitat homeowners with children in Minnesota felt more confident about their ability to fund college for their kids.
A safe place to live can have a significant impact on a family’s health. According to the World Health Organization, families without decent housing face greater personal and environmental risks, are less nourished and have less access to health care.
Habitat’s work has long-term effects on family’s economic opportunities. Habitat homeowners report they are better able to pay bills on time, build savings and invest in education and small businesses.
