While Habitat’s work might look a little different in each of the 70 countries where we have a presence — based on local needs, styles, climate and materials — the elements that make a home “decent” are universal.
Habitat for Humanity knows that creating opportunities for affordable homeownership changes lives. See the data behind why we build around the world and the difference a decent home makes for families.
Shelter empowers parents, and every single child deserves to feel that strength and stability day after day. That’s what we envision when we talk about a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
