Habitat For Humanity is a worldwide, grassroots movement and has a presence in more than 90 countries, including all 50 states of the United States. Since 1976 Habitat For Humanity has built more than 300,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.5 million people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.

 

Last week Zoomerang and MarketTools team members took a day to help build the foundation of homes for Habitat for Humanity. Check out the pictures of the team hard at work.

 

Habitat For Humanity Affordable Housing Statistics:

 

More than 30 million U.S. households face one or more of the following housing problems:

 

Cost burdens: paying an excessively large percentage of income on housing costs. More than 13 million households pay more than 50 percent of their income for housing.

 

Overcrowding: the number of people living in the house is greater than the total number of rooms in the house. About 6.1 million households live in overcrowded conditions.

 

Physical inadequacy: severe physical deficiencies, such as having no hot water, no electricity, no toilet, or neither a bathtub nor a shower. One out of every seven poor families lives in severely physically inadequate housing.
