We’re impressed by the hard work a Habitat homeowner puts into the process of qualifying for and building their home. We want to do what we can to help more people succeed in this effort, which makes their lives better and our community a stronger place. We love that Habitat offers a hand UP, not a hand out, since Habitat homeowners repay their mortgage.

- Sara Arnett, Capital Campaign Co-Chair

I think Habitat for Humanity is such a great way to help people learn about finances, work as a team, build for the future, become an integral part of producing for themselves and their family, and gaining confidence in their own ability and self-esteem. We need more programs in our country that emulate this ‘character building’ effort to enhance peoples’ lives and families as well as the future for their families and our great country.

- Steve Anderson, Capital Campaign Co-Chair
