Why We Build
In the U.S.:
18% of households earn wages at poverty level or below.
24% are struggling to make ends meet, falling between poverty wages and the basic cost of living.
In Whatcom County:
42% earn less then the basic cost of living
82k cannot afford adequate shelter
Affordable home ownership has the power to lift families out of poverty and into self-reliance where they can grow their futures with stability.
Safe, Decent, Affordable
At Habitat we don’t aim for glamorous. We aim for longevity, both in livability and affordability. We build safe, healthy, energy-efficient homes that families can easily maintain over time.
Since 1988 we’ve completed 37 ground-up builds, 5 repair projects and housed over 150 people.
What We’re Building

- Our 38th ground-up build with Linda Clow in Acme
- The relocation and renovation of the a modular home

With several other homebuyers hard at work on their pre-construction requirements, we’ll soon be adding to the list!
