Affordable, decent housing is one of our most basic human needs, yet it is in alarmingly short supply in our very own neighborhoods and throughout the world. A decent place to call home creates stability, launching families onto a positive trajectory of generational change that includes hope, improved health, and a better quality of life.
Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio has spent more than a quarter century bringing the dream of homeownership to families in need. Working in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat MidOhio’s partners, donors, and volunteers have played a significant role in rekindling hope for more than 340 families living in central Ohio through new home construction and home repairs.
Since its founding, Habitat for Humanity International has built more than 800,000 homes, providing shelter for over 1 million people in nearly 80 countries. A new Habitat home is completed somewhere in the world every 21 minutes! Locally, our commitment to central Ohio has grown to include Franklin, Licking, and Madison counties, serving neighborhoods that are in desperate need of revitalization and redevelopment. Recent local revitalization and homebuild efforts have included Columbus’ South Side, North & South Linden, Milo Grogan, Franklinton, and within the City of Newark.
