What's IMPACT Day?
Take a peek through our photo gallery, and you’ll see what happens on IMPACT Day. On May 18, volunteer work crews brought hope and dignity to 15 low-income homeowners around the Tri-Cities. These are families and individuals who, because of age, disability, and circumstance, would not have the resources to make critical repairs and improvements to their own homes. These improvements make their homes safe and livable, and sometimes even more affordable.
Why We Do It - And You Can Too
You should see the smiles on those homeowners faces, the excitement, and often times relief in their voices. At Habitat, there’s nothing we love more than to see how a decent house—whether new or improved—can change a life. Will you donate today, and be part of that change? Better yet, start your own fundraising page here! Each person who raises money for our campaign not only helps contribute vital funds, but also helps spread the word about substandard housing and what Habitat is doing to address the need. Remember, every bit helps!
About Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities:
Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and poverty in Benton and Franklin Counties, by making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner families. Habitat houses are then sold to the partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat homes.
Our community partners and volunteers make our work possible, and as of April 2013 we have built 80 homes, and completed over 30 home preservation projects throughout the Tri-Cities.
