Comes from a place of safety and security that only a home can bring
Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian ecumenical housing ministry that builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Founded in 1994, Golden Crescent Habitat serves DeWitt, Goliad, Jackson, Lavaca, and Victoria Counties. It also temporarily serves Refugio County during the Disaster Recovery project.
Golden Crescent Habitat’s new home construction program builds safe, affordable homes in partnership with low-income families and the local community. Volunteers build the houses, which are funded by donations from foundations, corporations, local businesses and individuals. Qualifying families purchase their homes at cost and pay the purchase price back over a 30-year period with no interest. These monthly payments create a sustainable funding source and are recycled into building more homes for other families in need. Each adult living in the home is required to work 300 hours of “Sweat Equity” in lieu of a tradition down payment.
Habitat also works with low-income homeowners to repair their houses, allowing them to remain in their homes. This includes minor repair projects, such as replacing siding, or hurricane repairs, such as putting on a new roof.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
