Homes, Communities, Hope + You
As a result of COVID-19, Mainers have been asked to stay home and stay safe. We're in good company, over 300 million people in 41 other states have been asked to stay at home through a myriad of shelter-in-place/safer at home orders. The scope and coordination of these orders are unprecedented and have led to a near halt of the US economy and over 16 million people losing their jobs.
In addition to the economic impact, these directives have also shined light on underlying housing issues that many Americans face. Low income households are particularly at risk as a result of their economic instability and their concentration in service industry and other hourly jobs. In an estimated 12 million of these households at least one contributing member work in an at-risk industry.
Everyone has been forced to consider the fundamental importance of home - of having safe, decent and affordable shelter. We ask that you help us make a difference in the lives of our current and future Habitat homeowners. Make a donation and help us combat the affordable housing crisis!
