HFH_ICON_HOUSE_BlueWhat Holds Us Together:

Partnerships


Partnerships with the entire community are vital to the success of Habitat. Churches, businesses, neighborhood associations, service groups, media and local government are all significant supporters of Habitat’s goal of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness.

Support for Habitat comes in many forms. Financial gifts, in-kind gifts, volunteers (both skilled and unskilled) and prayer are always welcome and much appreciated.

Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity invites groups to partner on the construction and repair of local family homes. Sponsorship means raising a significant portion of the cost of construction and recruiting and scheduling volunteers.

Area schools have also contributed to the success of the affiliate. Residential building trades classes at Delta College, Saginaw Career Complex, Carrollton High School and Bridgeport High School have all completes multiple houses.

Partnerships sometimes come from unlikely sources. Inmates at Saginaw Correctional Facility built a 3-bedroom house on prison grounds which was then delivered, completely finished, to a site on South Wheeler Street in Saginaw. This was the World’s First prison-built Habitat house!

While Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity is best know for the construction of new houses, most of the work currently being done are repairs on homeowner-occupied houses. By assisting low-income families to maintain a home they already own and live in, Habitat helps prevent the family from having to move. This helps neighborhoods stay full and continue to develop, avoiding crime which comes along with vacant or abandoned houses.

Despite most Habitat projects currently being repairs on homeowner-occupied houses, Habitat still helps low-income families who are searching for a home. Instead of adding to the thousands of empty houses in Saginaw & Shiawassee County by building new houses, Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity can obtain an already vacant house and rehab it, turning it into a like-new home.

When it is necessary, or an opportunity presents itself, Saginaw-Shiawassee Habitat for Humanity will build a new, simple, decent, affordable home for a family.

All projects, repairs, rehabs, new builds require many generous partners.  The work comes in all shapes and sizes and so do the partners.
