Contest Rules-Win 2 Tickets to the Tigers Game
Habitat for Humanity seeks to put God’s love into action, by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. As the State Support Organization, we strive to increase the potential of the 76 Habitat affiliates throughout Michigan.
Our mission is to help build simple, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with people in need. We provide a hand-up, not a hand-out. Habitat partner families make mortgage payments and pay property taxes.
Reports show that as of today, over 30,000 Michigan homes are in foreclosure. And in 2010, there were 100,000 Michigan residents homeless at some point during the year, including more than 22,000 children.
These statistics reflect that the growing need in our communities is not to just build or repair homes, but to become a change agent in affordable housing in Michigan.
Help us put an end to poverty housing!
