Global total includes more than sixteen families in North Augusta supported by Habitat for Humanity of North Augusta.
Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 1 million families—representing 5 million people in more than 70 countries—improve their living conditions since the organization was founded in 1976.
Habitat for Humanity of North Augusta contributed to this global effort to offer a hand up to more families in need of adequate shelter. Since 1998 HFHNA has served more than sixteen families through housing solutions by making new construction available.
“We are proud to have our Sponsors help us get our sixteenth home off the ground” says Tom Ellers, President of HFHNA. “Habitat for Humanity is pleased to be part of the effort to eliminate substandard housing,” said Gene Carline, Community Relations. “We would like to thank our sponsors and volunteers for their support as we continue to improve the North Augusta community.
After a late start, our cadre of volunteers has made tremendous progress towards the completion of house number 16. Once completed in early spring of 2015, HFHNA is poised to immediately begin work on house number 17.”
During its 2014 fiscal year, Habitat for Humanity served more than 300,000 families worldwide—including the current construction located at H & H Street in Belvedere. The table below provides a snapshot of Habitat’s global impact.

“We are delighted to achieve this incredible milestone and have seen the positive influence a stable home can have on families,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Because of a house, families have better access to health, financial security, education and employment opportunities. We want to continue building impact so that millions more people can have decent, safe places to live.”
Habitat’s global mission was made possible in fiscal year 2014 thanks to the hands and hearts of more than 2 million volunteers and the financial support of many generous donors. In addition to helping on Habitat build sites, volunteers also served as local board members, in Habitat ReStores and through affordable housing advocacy efforts.
