Habitat for Humanity Corpus Christi
Habitat for Humanity-Corpus Christi is a non-profit ecumenical Christian organization seeking to put God's love into action. HFHCC brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. Our Vision isa World where everyone has a decent place.
In response to Hurricane Harvey, HFHCC has implemented our Home Preservation Program which includes assistance with Critical Home and Disaster Repairs. HFHCC has assisted 20 families with roof repairs and anticipates assisting 40 additional families.
HFHCC has saved thousands of dollars thanks to volunteer hours leveraged through construction, home repairs, ReStore, special events, family selection, and other committee efforts. Your financial support, your voice, and your time will help families in need of a decent place to live.
And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future. Toni, a single mom and her two boys were living in an unhealthy environment with mold issues in every room. The landlord continued to just paint over the areas never eradicating the real problem. All three family members suffer with complications from asthma. Toni also could not let the boys play outside because they were in an unsafe neighborhood. Alonso and Tony spent all their time away from school inside an apartment full of mold. It was what they could afford.
Toni was working full time while going to school so she could better her situation and improve life for her boys. When asked how she would manage work, school and complete her required "sweat-equity" hours, Toni's response was an adamant, "There is no choice. I have to do this, to make life better for my boys. This is for my family. This is for my sons." HFHCC worked to make her wish, and the hopes of her two boys, come true this past spring. Toni and her boys moved into the 52nd home built by HFHCC. Her youngest son's hope was to one day have a home close to his school. Their new home is right across the street from his school. Studies have shown children who live in their own home do better in school and socially.
With help from the Habitat program, hard work, and careful budgeting Toni's family has a clean, decent, place to live. Toni will have reduced her monthly housing costs empowering her to become a better provider for her boys.
