Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity - Family People

Home Ownership

The stability and security that home ownership brings to families frequently results in better grades and relationships in children, as well as in opportunities for adults to pursue other life goal, such as additional education and better paying jobs. These homes help break the cycle of poverty for children and adults, opening doors of opportunity and giving them a new vision of what they can accomplish in their lives.
