Skagit Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to creating affordable housing solutions for low-income families and eliminating substandard housing in Skagit County by breaking the downward cycle of poverty. We build safe, healthy affordable homes together with qualified Partner Families, volunteers, donors, sponsors and community partners. We accomplish these goals by:
- Constructing affordable homes for hardworking and deserving families;
- Advocating for affordable, fair and just housing policies;
- Providing training/access to resources to help families succeed in their transition into homeownership; and
- Improving living conditions which in many cases improves health issues/concerns as well.
Our program is benefitting not only the Partner Families moving into these homes, but it strengthens our community as well by:
- Increasing tax revenue to support schools, and other community programs;
- Future generations stay above the poverty level; perpetuating future tax revenue for our community;
- Bringing neighbors/community supporters together allowing them to see effects stable housing has on families; and
- Increasing number of affordable housing units available in Skagit County.
Our Habitat Helpers Program provides critical home repairs and maintenance with low-income homeowners in Skagit County. These Partner Families typically have found themselves unable to maintain a home or property due to financial, physical or other limitations. These projects are one to two days and require support from the community as well, and are a great way to bring a group together and make a difference for someone in need within our community with dramatic results at the end of the day.
In partnership with United Way of Skagit County and many other organizations, faith and service groups, businesses and individuals, Skagit Habitat for Humanity is able to strengthen our community and work towards eliminating poverty housing right here on a grass roots level in Skagit County.
