Affordable Home Program Sponsorship
Building Homes. Building Hope. Building Communities.
Organizations or individuals can choose to fully or partially fund a home for a family in need. The lives of L-C Valley Habitat homebuyer families are dramatically changed when they own their homes and the whole family is able to put down roots:
- Children go to the same school each year, and their academic performance improves.
- Because mortgage payments are lower than their previous rent, L-C Valley Habitat homeowners have more disposable income to spend in their local communities.
- L-C Valley Habitat families become neighborhood leaders. They serve on PTA’s and community associations. They encourage changes that help transform whole neighborhoods.
- Increasing home ownership lowers crime rates; public dollars are saved while the quality of life in our entire community improves.
- L-C Valley Habitat homeowners contribute property taxes right back into their community.
