Home is the Key

Habitat for Humanity believes everyone deserves a place to call home. A safe, stable environment to place your head at night. A backyard to play in. A bedroom to relax and unwind. For many families, this isn’t anything but a dream. During the month of April, the Home is the Key initiative was at the forefront.

Fatoumata’s journey to #homeownership is so inspiring! Not only does she have a place to raise her four boys, but now a home where they can all flourish!

What is a Home?

A house is just somewhere to live, but a home is what families hope for. Habitat for Humanity looks to build a brighter future for families by providing safe shelter. There’s a strong importance of togetherness and the community we strive for. Every parent deserves to be able to provide for their children and not have to choose between paying bills or buying groceries. Habitat for Humanity tries to give hope for a better tomorrow by building, bringing people together, and helping to create opportunity through safe, affordable, decent houses.

Monique is very proud to be a homeowner. She’s looking to a brighter future!

The Key

During the family build process, one thing is clear. All they want are a place to call their own. Through Home is the Key, we see what families are fighting for. Whether it’s a financial burden, a medical emergency, or an unexpected challenge lots of things can get in the way of homeownership. Habitat for Humanity aims to take some weight off of their shoulders by opening up a world of equality, better health, and opportunity.
