This holiday season, you can made hope a reality for more low-income families in the Ozarks. With your help, we will give a hand up – not a hand out – to another hardworking family in need.
Candy Cane Campaign: $8,155 raised by December 31
This holiday season, families from Woodland Heights hoped to raise $5,000 to help build and repair more affordable homes, and revitalize neighborhoods for families in need.
You can help reach and exceed our goal! Thanks to generous donors like you, $8,025 was raised for the Candy Cane Campaign to help homeowners achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Thank you for your support!
Meet Mathew and Heidi:
Matthew and Heidi had little hope of ever owning their own home. Although they both worked hard, they barely made enough to afford a one-bedroom apartment for their family of four.
“Every time we felt like we would start to get ahead, one of our kids would get sick, or our car would need a repair and it would set us right back,” said Mathew “We were tired and we were losing hope.”
Fortunately, Matthew and Heidi heard about Habitat for Humanity. They applied and were accepted into the homebuying program based on their need and willingness to partner in our program. That’s right – we offer families a hand up, not a hand out.
Each family invests hundreds of hours of sweat equity to help build their home. And when construction is complete, they make affordable mortgage payments that we use to build and repair more homes for families in need!
As you think about being “home for the holidays” this year, will you help ensure that more families like Matthew and Heidi’s have a decent and affordable place to live?
Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more will give a family the opportunity to build and buy their own Habitat home this holiday season! When you support the Candy Cane Campaign, you will give a gift they’ll never forget…a place to call home.
Thank you for helping homeowners achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
