You’re here because you’re a person who believes in setting your sights on a goal, and working hard to achieve it. You’re here because you want to feel great on your way to that goal. You’re here because you know we’re better together.
Habitat is here for all of that. We’ve got our sights on a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and do the hard work to get there. That journey is fulfilling, fun, and inspiring. And the job only gets done because we’re in it together.
We’ve seen it borne out time and again in our 36-year history: we can achieve incredible things when we come together as a community. And this Cycle of Hope community is unique – our tools might be bicycles or running shoes, but we build real solutions to our housing crisis. We’re believers and we’re do-ers.
That’s the spirit that will build the way forward. A belief in the principles of justice and partnership, and the can-do attitude to build the community we aspire to. A faith in what families and communities can create with equity and opportunity, and the action that makes it more than a vision.
When you ride Cycle of Hope, you ride for a parent with an affordable mortgage, who can lift their thoughts past the end of the month and invest in the future. You ride for a child with the stability to memorize their home address for the first time. You ride for a senior who will age safely in the home and neighborhood they love. You ride for a couple who can stop worrying about debt and start saving for their first home.
We ride for a healthy housing ecosystem, equity and justice, a sustainable society, and a positive legacy to last untold generations. Together, we ride.
We believe that everyone deserves a decent place to live. By creating, preserving, and expanding access to affordable housing, we provide families with the opportunity to transform their lives, gaining the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better future.
OUR INNOVATIVE MODEL maximizes impact by building partnerships with families who work alongside us, volunteers who give their time, and donors who contribute financially. We reinvest mortgage payments and leverage donor dollars to maximize our impact. Families gain economic stability and build a foundation for the future – for themselves, their children, and generations to come.
Habitat brings homeownership within reach of families with limited incomes, selling homes through stable, affordable mortgages. We promote equity by increasing access to homeownership – along with the positive health, financial, and educational outcomes that are associated with homeownership – among families pushed to the margins of the housing market.
Habitat supports homeowners with repairs and improvements that are out of their financial means. It’s an important tool in our toolbox, one that mitigates conditions that threaten homeowners’ health and safety, prevents displacement, beautifies communities, and holds onto the affordable housing we have.
As a HUD-approved agency, Habitat empowers people with the skills and guidance to better their financial wellness and work toward their goals. Whether it’s purchasing their first home or balancing a household budget, our clients take charge of their financial lives and face the future with confidence.
