At Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, we build because home creates the possibility for each of us to reach our fullest potential and thrive. We believe home is foundational for our physical and emotional health; home is critical for our ability to learn and be productive individuals; and homeownership generates equity. Habitat builds “home” in many ways: new construction, repairs to existing homes, support to establish clear title and ownership, financial literacy workshops, repair classes, advocacy for better policies and systems – and so much more.
To address the acute need for affordable housing, Habitat Philadelphia has developed an audacious plan to double our impact. The $5 million We Build Together campaign will elevate Habitat’s capacity to deliver our innovative solutions that promote equity, longevity, and community so that twice as many Philadelphians can achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
