individual giving

Habitat’s common sense approach works. Lifting a family out of poverty and setting them on a course for success doesn’t happen overnight, but it can be done with your help. Your unrestricted support gives Habitat Lehigh Valley the ability to use funds when and where they are most needed, and where they can be leveraged for strongest impact. Your unrestricted dollars keep our mission moving by funding such expenses as:

SHARED SERVICES that sustain the key programmatic work of our affiliate including volunteer management, construction supervision, accounting technology ,general staffing, facilities and overall management of the organization.

FAMILY SUPPORT through staff interactions and family mentoring is a key aspect of our work in the Lehigh Valley. Providing guidance, support and understanding to our families as they move toward homeownership is critical to success.

Please remember to support us during the year with your generous donations as well as through United Way and company matching programs.  If your company particpates in the United Way campaign, please write-in “Habitat Lehigh Valley”.
