Why We Do What We Do?
· About half of the renters in Dickinson and Iron County pay more than 30% of their income for rent. Habitat families generally pay a lower monthly mortgage payment than they were paying previously in rent.
· Studies have shown that homeownership leads to more stability in the family, more involvement in the community, and more involvement in their children’s activities.
· Studies have also shown that children living in stable homes experience a higher rate of success in school than children whose families relocate multiple times or live in inadequate housing.
· Many of our neighborhoods have homes reaching the end of their uselful lifespan; some structures are over 60 years old. Most of the sidewalks and parks around these older homes need attention or are in disrepair. Habitat, in partnership with others, is committed to changing this situation.
