Home ownership builds successful children; compared to children of renters (of the same age, race, income, etc) a national independent study showed the following:
- 25% are more likely to graduate from high school
- 16% are more likely to graduate from college
- 20% are less likely to become teenage mothers
- 9% have higher math and 7% higher reading proficiency scores
Habitat families become great citizens and neighbors. The same survey showed that homeowners; compared to renters (equalized for age, race, income, etc.);
- are 28% more likely to repair or improve their homes
- are 10% more likely to report that they have worked to solve local problems
- are 15% more likely to vote
Your gift to Verde Valley Habitat goes to work in your own back yard.
