We’d like to introduce you to some families who have partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home.

Some have lived in their homes for years, while others are just starting out. All have this in common: Their hard work and partnership with Habitat are helping them achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
