Our mission is simple: Building Communities, Empowering Families.
Strong families are key to stability in a community, and asafe and decent home is fundamental in strengthening the family. Shelter is a fundamental need of all people, and everyone deserves a safe, stable, and affordable place to call home. A new Habitat Home typically costs our homebuyers less than one-third the price of the median Bucks County home, and the monthly payment on their mortgage is often significantly less than the monthly rent they were paying for substandard housing. With their housing cost burden removed, a strong roof over their head and a solid foundation under their feet, Habitat homeowners have the strength, stability and independence they need to build a much better future. Habitat homes and families have a stabilizing impact on the communities where we build. We work to empower families and engage the community, which helps to unite neighbors, reduce crime and strengthen entire neighborhoods.
