This past year has been one filled with action. Between July 1, 2001, and June 30, 2002, Habitat for Humanity coordinated two Jimmy Carter Work Projects on two different continents; invited world leaders to join in the global work of eliminating poverty housing; brought together leaders from Habitat for Humanity national organizations and affiliates from around the world for learning and sharing; involved thousands of young people in building, fund raising and educational events; celebrated our 25th anniversary of building houses and hope… And that barely scratches the surface.

During FY02, Habitat for Humanity worked in partnership with 19,532 families who now have the safety, security, self-esteem and self-confidence that come with having a decent place to live. It is these homeowners—and those still without a decent, affordable place to live—who make our continued house-building work both necessary and fulfilling.

For more than 25 years, my wife Linda and I have felt led by God to help people in need around the world have a simple, decent place to live. Our lives have been blessed by this ministry, as have the lives of hundreds of thousands of others—homeowners, volunteers, sponsors and other partners. I pray that as we continue this God-ordained work, Habitat for Humanity will remain faithful and determined to bless still hundreds of thousands more.

Habitat for Humanity's strategic plan outlines the organization's commitment to continued growth and success in building houses with families in need. A rolling plan, updated annually and set to be reviewed by the International Board of Directors every three years, the strategic plan guides Habitat for Humanity toward the goals of building in 100 countries, housing 1 million people and completing our 200,000th house by the end of the year 2005.

To meet these goals, the International Board of Directors has identified four areas of strategic focus: leadership, innovation, capacity and advocacy. Developing abilities in these areas is how Habitat for Humanity will remain vital and dynamic in its mission and arrive at 2005 with the capacity to take on even greater challenges.

Staff, volunteers, homeowners, donors and other supporters of Habitat for Humanity must work together—and continue to involve other dedicated individuals and groups—to realize Habitat's goals. We are profoundly grateful for God's guidance in our successes this year and for His grace as we have faced challenges. We pray for God's support as we move into our second quarter-century of putting His love into action to help families in need.
