From our homes to yours,
Happy Thanks + Giving season
We have so many reasons to be grateful this season –
and you are one of them!
Your support of Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity is amazing!
Last year, we served 95 families through homeownership, critical home repair, and financial counseling — and this year we plan to serve 103 families. In the last 33 years, we’ve helped nearly 650 local and global families thrive. And we’re just getting started… because families and children deserve the hope that stable housing and resilient neighborhoods provide. In the next 10 years, our goal is to serve over 150 families annually – putting Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity in the top 10 of all Habitat organizations in the country.
Today, we know more families and children than ever are suffering in the four counties we serve without equitable access to decent, affordable housing. The sobering reality in Black Hawk County alone is that 15% of all people and 30% of families with single female heads of households are living in poverty. As a result, nearly 15,000 local households can’t afford decent housing. Our waiting list for homeownership is nearly 700 families and growing!
We passionately pursue our work. We set huge goals and push ourselves to keep learning and growing. But we can’t do any of this without people like you. You give us hope and the financial help we need to fund the nearly $8 million it will take this year to keep doing more for local families, children, and neighborhoods.
To those of you who’ve been our partner for many years, we thank you and ask you to give again. To those of you who have yet to join us in our local mission, we pray you will say yes to hope and give today.
