BBAHFH was chartered in 1996 by an amazing group of volunteers who joined together for the good of their community with the goal of building affordable housing for low income individuals within the eight communities our affiliate serves; Wareham, Marion, Mattapoisett, Rochester, Fairhaven, Acushnet, New Bedford, Dartmouth and Westport. Each affiliate is an independent and locally managed chapter with a volunteer board that coordinates the building of a home from the first shovel of dirt to the long anticipated home dedication.

Habitat for Humanity mobilizes local leadership and
resources to expand access for all people to decent,
affordable shelter. Typically, volunteers and home
partners work together through Habitat for Humanity
affiliates to build or renovate houses. In this process,
Habitat forgoes making a profit on loans through interest,
putting value instead on meeting human need.
Long-term housing security for a family—typically homeownership—is
the expected result. Payments made by
the new home partner go into a local Fund for Humanity
to build or renovate more houses, giving home partners
the opportunity to give as well as to receive. Habitat
home partners are selected on the basis of need and
willingness to partner, regardless of race, religion, gender
or ethnic background.

WE partner with hardworking families who earn between 30 and 60% of the area median income and do not qualify for other homeownership programs. Not only do Habitat families pay for their homes through a monthly mortgage, they also put in between 400 and 500 hours of sweat equity prior to becoming homeowners.

Habitat homes are built completely through donations and volunteer labor of individuals, organizations, businesses, and foundations throughout the MetroWest and Greater Worcester areas. Because of this we are able to sell our homes below market value to qualifying, deserving families. We convey our homes to pre-qualified families with interest-free mortgages at a price based on 30% of family income, less the estimated costs of taxes, insurance, and utilities.

Our programs go beyond traditional job training by addressing the self-esteem tools necessary for women to stay motivated and confident while meeting the needs of their families and workplace demands. Women’s studies have shown that domestic violence, welfare, generational poverty, and chronic unemployment have a negative impact on self-esteem, self-efficacy, and confidence. Our workshops address these issues and provide women with tools to create and maintain a positive attitude by recognizing the negative messages they receive and replacing them with positive, powerful self-talk. When people alter their belief system by accepting that they are truly valuable, they want more for their lives and their families. At Attitudes & Attire™, we recognized that our programs could help address some of the issues returning female veterans face. As a complement to our core programs, we offer Boots to Heels workshops exclusively for veterans.

Service Year Alliance believes all young Americans should have the transformational experience of serving their nation. We do this by helping organizations create, grow, and improve programs; recruiting young people to serve before, during, and after college; offering an online platform to match people and programs; and helping to secure public and other resources to support the service year. One day, we hope a year of full-time civilian or military service will become a common expectation and opportunity and our country will have a reliable pipeline of purposeful, prepared leaders.

Our strategic plan covers four years (2016-2019), with two overarching goals: Grow service years from 65,000 positions each year to 100,000; and create the conditions for large-scale, long-term growth. Service Year Alliance is building a three-part infrastructure necessary to meet those two objectives: catalyze supply of service years, build awareness and demand among young people; unlock more funding.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.

We trace our roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.

In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations that would eventually band together and become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. Today, membership stands at nearly 1.7 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary.

For more than 30 years, YPI has been breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty by providing access to education, workforce training, and essential services for youth and families.

In Los Angeles, YPI focuses on serving key high-need communities in Pacoima and Central LA where it can saturate neighborhoods with needed resources and support services. This approach is best exemplified through the Los Angeles Promise Neighborhoods in Pacoima and Hollywood, and the Los Angeles Promise Zone which encompasses East Hollywood, Thai Town, Little Armenia, Koreatown, and Pico Union / Westlake.

To address the needs of its target communities, YPI provides a vast array of programs throughout the cradle-to- career pipeline: early childhood 0–5 year olds and their parents; children in K-12; Opportunity Youth who are out-of- school and not working; and adults.

Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success.

We provide Suicide Prevention Workshops to the Veteran, family and community through the Community Colleges and other organizations who ask us to speak which allows for healing and communication. We have a round table discussion at the end of each workshop to further this education. There are Veteran Businesses that set up tables at these functions to further our next mission of guiding Veterans and their families to organizations that are working together to help the Veterans heal and get back on their feet.

North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity (NSLCHFH) builds or renovates houses and sells them, using no interest mortgages, to low income families at no profit to Habitat. NSLCHFH seeks to help one family at a time break the cycle of poverty and restore hope by building a simple, decent and affordable home with a family who would otherwise not be able to have this opportunity. Permanent and safe housing is critical to a family’s ability to thrive. Children perform better in school when they have a stable home environment. Since homes are built with volunteer labor, with Habitat partner families contributing at least 200 hours of their own labor, homes are affordable. They are also energy efficient, so utility costs are low. NSLCHFH recruits volunteers to build homes and serve on its board of directors and committees. It raises funds for operations and for purchasing the materials for building houses. It also seeks donations of building materials.

Founded in 1989, Charleston Habitat for Humanity (CHFH) focuses on a population not served by others in the affordable housing arena - the low to moderate income family living in tough conditions, with high rent, higher aspirations and the inability to obtain a conventional mortgage. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to families in need. To date, the affiliate has built 82 new homes, renovated 16 houses and supported 45 homes in Honduras - improving over 600 lives through home ownership. In October 2016, CHFH is publicly announcing a new initiative focusing on critical home repairs.

Tillamook County Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing organization. By building with volunteer labor and offering affordable mortgages, we partner with local low-income families to help them build equity towards stable futures. We welcome all people to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with those in need of adequate shelter.

Tillamook County Habitat for Humanity gives a hand up, not a hand out. Homeowner families invest 200-500 hours of their own “sweat equity” labor into the houses. Their monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving fund to help continue the construction of more houses, thus the partnership continues!

In August 2010, Lear Corporation made a commitment to the City of Detroit to provide $5,000,000 in cash or gifts over a ten year period. The program would be geared toward improving the lives of young people in the city through improvements in recreation opportunities, nutrition, learning and more. The areas for investment would be recommended by the City of Detroit and implemented/funded by Lear Corporation.

The first request from the Mayor’s Office was to renovate Hope Park, on the city’s Westside, near McNichols and Lahser. The request called for over $500,000 in improvements. Based on the value of this project, Lear was keenly attentive to the need to “protect” this investment. They had seen firsthand how many improvements one year became next year’s renovation project. With this in mind, Lear invested approximately $75,000 in landscaping and maintenance equipment to provide the means by which Hope Park (and any future park projects) could be properly maintained.Click here to v

Habitat for Humanity of Broward was founded in 1983 to fulfill the international housing organization’s mission in Broward County, FL. Through partnership housing, Habitat Broward secures and leverages the resources needed to build or renovate 25-30 homes per year that are sold to low income families in need. To date, 400 families have been empowered to move from substandard housing to first-time homeownership at a price they can afford.

Habitat Broward provides homebuyer education and credit counseling to equip partner families with the tools and support needed to succeed in homeownership. Habitat Broward provides a non-profit, 0%-interest mortgage that is tailored to ensure total monthly payments do not exceed 30% of a family’s income. Habitat Broward’s portfolio of 300 loans generates $800,000 per year—revenue that is reinvested in the mission to continue building homes and serving families in need.

HFHMGC was formed in January 2007 when Harrison County HFH and HFH of Jackson County merged organizations. The original affiliates were formed in the mid-1980s and were mostly volunteer run building a few houses each year. Since then, HFHMGC has constructed or repaired more than 961 homes including 53 beautification projects and 41 weatherization projects. Currently, we have 15 projects in process including 14 homes being rehabilitation and 1 new home being built. HFHMGC works with low to moderate income families who have faced some type of barriers to homeownership. For a variety of legitimate reasons, the families have not been able to achieve the American Dream of owning their own home. HFHMGC reduces these barriers by working one-on-one with the clients to establish a working plan to reach their goal. Helping build are volunteers both local and out of town. Since 2005, HFHMGC has hosted over 26,000 volunteers from nearly every state in the US.

Habitat for Humanity is a hand up, not a hand out. Our homeownership & home preservation families partner with us to improve their future by building and improving their assets. When families focus on asset-building, their children’s lives improve, they statistically achieve higher education opportunities and typically become homeowners themselves.
o Partnership: Families contribute physical labor known as “sweat equity” which provides meaningful interaction between the families, GSHfH staff, volunteers, and community members.
o Pride in homeownership: Completing the required “sweat-equity” hours on their home allows families to once again feel proud of their long-term investment in homeownership.
o Development of skills and knowledge: Family members learn more about the maintenance and upkeep of their home as they work alongside volunteers, staff and other building professionals.

To date, Habitat Newburgh has dedicated 85 homes in our community. This has enabled nearly 350 members of our community to live in safe and secure homes, while also contributing nearly $400K in taxes towards Newburgh. The vast majority of our construction work is also performed by volunteers and the individuals who will be purchasing Habitat homes.
