It’s a question that Habitat staff are blessed to hear answers to almost daily.
We’ve heard a partner family in Georgia describe their new home as “a foundation” for their future. A teenager in Las Vegas remembers when he was 9 and his mother put in hundreds of hours of labor on a home that would create “a fresh start for my family.” In Madagascar, incrementally building a safe, stable home led to a couple’s “new beginning” and a rediscovered “hope to have a good life.”
Comfort. Security. Favorite family memories. A place for sleepovers. A place of refuge. Habitat volunteers, supporters and partner families have told us many ways they think of home.
