What Is Home Is The Key (HITK)
HITK is a campaign that seeks to increase awareness in the importance of decent, safe, affordable homes AND raise funds to help support Habitat for Humanity programs.
One Study Found…
“One out of every two American adults face increasing barriers to homeownership.” Barriers cited include:
- Rising home prices 18%
- Lack of fund for down payment / closing costs 14%
“Analysis shows that every year a child spends in a better environment improves that child’s outcomes in adulthood in areas including pre-tax income, employment status, college attendance, teenage birthrates, and marital status”
“One study found that poor quality housing, including structural and maintenance deficiencies, was the most consistently and strongly predictive of children’s negative well-being across the span of childhood, including worse emotional and behavioral functioning and lower cognitive skills”.
