Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that brings volunteers together to help change the lives and living conditions of people around the world. The goal of the organization is to help homeless families worldwide. Because of donations of money and supplies and the help of volunteers, Habitat for Humanity houses are often built and repaired at very low cost. To get started, poor and needy families apply to local programs to become “partner families” with Habitat for Humanity. Partner families may have to pay a down payment and monthly payments for their homes but they also pay in “sweat equity”. “Sweat equity” means that partner families have the responsibility of building and repairing their homes with the help of volunteers. So, partner families often spend many hours on the construction of their house and on houses for other families, too.
