Habitat for Humanity Positively Impacts Colorado
Habitat for Humanity positively Impacts Colorado
In 2018, Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with Bryant Colorado and Research Evaluation Consulting, LLC, conducted a statewide study to find out the importance of homeownership. Below are stats and a quote from a homeowner from this study:
94% of homeowners felt that their lives had improved since moving into their Habitat home.
90% saw an improvement in their family's health.
82% of Habitat homeowners said their children now invite friends over to play or to do homework.
90% of homeowners reported that their neighborhood felt safer than where they lived before.
"I don't have to work tow jobs to afford housing; I can work a normal work week and be present as a parent for my children."
When the Cost of Home is something we all can afford, we begin to build strength, stability, and self-reliance into thriving communities.
