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 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.
