Helping others is not just a charge of our humanity, but it is a cornerstone of all faiths and faith that does not result in good deeds is not real faith. —James 2:20
Habitat families have many stories: some are refugees who have escaped persecution from their native lands and are working and living in Nashville, while others are born into poverty right here in Middle Tennessee and have been unable to break that generational cycle. All of them have one thing in common: they’ve come to Habitat willing to work to earn an opportunity to change their life and the lives of their children. And they need a faithful community to create that opportunity.
The only thing Habitat gives away is opportunity. Everything else is earned. Habitat's partner families work hard to lift their lives out of poverty. They are not asking for handouts, they are seeking opportunity.
We teach sustainability and independence through education and giving back. Habitat's model of homeownership works to empower families. Habitat partner families go through a rigorous selection process, take time out of their busy lives to attend homeownership classes twice a week, and work on the build site on the weekends, building not only their house, but also their neighbors' houses, to earn a zero percent interest mortgage rate.
Your gift lasts for generations. We know children of homeowners become valuable contributors to society on many levels. Children of homeowners are more likely to graduate high school, graduate college, vote, and become involved in their communities. Habitat homeowners pay an average of $600,000 annually in property taxes.
Housing is a critical human need, a foundation for well-being spiritually, mentally and physically. Your gift makes homeownership attainable for Nashville’s low-income population — changing lives through future generations.

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return. —Luke 6:38
