Your gift is an investment in your community. Your gift helps 1,000 families each year build and buy new homes, repair existing homes, keep homes safe from foreclosure, and break the cycle of poverty. Your gift changes lives.
Having a Home Matters
It is not just a place to live. It’s the foundation for a better life and a better Austin. The impact of your gift is powerful. This is why it matters:
Homeownership is one of the options available to low-income, hardworking families to break the cycle of poverty for their families. Homeownership imparts substantial social and community benefits. It provides families an opportunity to accumulate wealth and build a stable future. Homeownership is the basis for a number of positive social, economic, family, and civic outcomes. It boosts the educational performance of children, lowers crime rates and lessens welfare dependency, induces higher civic and volunteer participation, and improves health care outcomes.
