“Home for the holidays” for many of us, is a magical time of year when we look forward to gathering together with our families and friends to celebrate the season in the warmth and comfort of our homes.
Many Habitat Waukesha homeowners have shared that one of the greatest joys of being in their new houses is having simple get-togethers where friends, neighbors, and family members gather around the table to share holiday meals.
But, when you don’t have an affordable place to live, the holidays can be a heart-wrenching time.
More than 18 million U.S. households — 1 in 6- spend more than half of their income on housing. The added pressure for holiday expenditures means that families must make hard choices between holiday celebrations and living expenses. No one should have to choose between a happy holiday with their family and making ends meet.
With your help, Habitat families don’t have to choose.
Your financial investment and dedication empower hardworking families to earn their way to homeownership with new strength that lasts for generations. As the holidays approach, I hope you can find it in your heart to give more families reasons to celebrate.
Thank you very much for your compassion for the families who urgently need secure housing — this season and every day of the year.
