Cape Area Habitat for Humanity has been a great organization to partner with. Their desire to help us fulfill the dream of owning our own home has opened so many doors for our family and has given us the courage needed to make other responsible financial and life decisions. Cape Area Habitat for Humanity has given our family the opportunity to take reasonable steps to get out of the mess we had made and pursue the American Dream. Thank You for the “hand up” to a better life for our family, our children, and our community!
We have lived in our Habitat for Humanity house for over 5 years and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Habitat, our family has a home of our own, that we helped build ourselves. Now our children can grow and thrive in a safe and affordable place. If it weren’t for Habitat, we might not have been able to build and own our beautiful home!

Hello, my name is Bertha, and I am a Habitat for Humanity homeowner since 1998. It is a blessing to have the opportunity to be a homeowner, which is an American dream. I am thankful to this organization to give families this opportunity at an affordable cost to be homeowners. I try to get the word out to family and friends who are renters about going to the organization and fill out an application. Whether or not you feel as though your credit isn’t in the best of shape, at least if you are denied they will inform you on what you need to do to get it to where they can approve you. And the best thing about getting a home, besides getting a home, is the fact that you help build it from ground up. So Habitat for Humanity isn’t a charity where they just give you a helping hand, but a hand out to help you pull yourself up so that you have the opportunity as anyone else to be a homeowner.
So I say thanks to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for introducing me to Habitat for Humanity!
