Habitat for Humanity welcomed the new century doing what we’ve been doing for the past 24 years: hammering out faith and hope by building and renovating simple, decent houses with people who desperately need them.

The millennial houses—built in the last few days of the 20th century and dedicated at the dawn of the first day of the 21st century—symbolized a multitude of activity highlights of Habitat for Humanity International’s Fiscal Year 2000 (July 1, 1999, to June 30, 2000). By far, this 12-month period was the most productive house-building year in Habitat for Humanity’s history, with a whopping 25 percent increase in construction from just a year earlier. Worldwide, 17,208 Habitat for Humanity houses were built during FY00: 6,181 in Latin America and the Caribbean; 5,129 in the United States; 3,221 in Africa and the Middle East; 2,553 in our Asia/Pacific area; 76 in Canada; and 48 in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. That brought to 95,657 the number of houses built since Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976.

Walls and doors, hammers and saws, are just part of our story, though. Infinitely more important are the people who build the houses and the people who live in them. During the past year, hundreds of thousands of people around the globe helped build houses, or gave money to make construction possible. Nearly 86,000 more people experienced in their new Habitat for Humanity homes what a difference decent, afford- able shelter makes.

With more than a billion people around the world still living in substandard housing, the challenge is enormous. But with God’s help, and with more people embracing and supporting the challenge every day, Habitat for Humanity will keep on hammering until sometime, before the 22nd century dawns, humanity can proclaim: No one, nowhere— no child, no family, no grandparent—any longer must live in unsafe, unhealthy housing.
