Families all across the United States are paying too high a price to cover the cost of their home. Rents and homeownership costs are skyrocketing, while wages are not keeping pace. Far too often, families struggle to make ends meet.
Welcome and thanks for stopping by our page! Kentucky Habitat for Humanity is determined to address the affordable housing crisis in Kentucky. Not only is it our mission, it is MY mission!
Yes – we are currently in acute recovery mode from the December tornadoes – building now and for the next three years to repair and refurbish communities destroyed by those storms. But our day-to-day work continues; facing the ongoing disaster of families that have lived in substandard, unsafe, and many times dangerous housing for generations, largely ignored and left out of programs where they fall between the cracks. The shortage of affordable housing in Kentucky alone nears 80,000 units at last count and Habitat will and can make a difference for these families and help change their future.
Please, please, don’t hesitate to call me because I want to get to know who you are. I am more than happy to provide any information on the work we are doing or answering questions about how you can help.
Thank you for believing in our work and joining with us to make a difference.
Welcome to Kentucky Habitat for Humanity!
Kentucky Habitat for Humanity (KyHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope.
Kentucky experienced the worst tornado event in our state’s history during the December 10-11, 2021 tornado outbreak. The destruction has affected at least 18 communities and taken precious lives, demolished landscapes/streetscapes, and displaced more than 1,000 families from their homes. Kentucky Habitat for Humanity is working to help rebuild communities by moving them from ruin to recovery.
The most basic needs become both scarce and dire in the event of an emergency: health, water, shelter, sanitation, livelihoods, safety and education, among others. We believe that safe, reliable shelter provides the foundation from which all of these things can begin to reemerge during the relief and rebuilding process. It is also crucial in these emergency situations that various organizations are working together rather than separately and we are proud to be part of an amazing group working to provide solutions that will create the path to stability for these communities.
We ask that you consider a donation to support Kentucky Habitat for Humanity’s work in these tornado ravaged communities.
