Habitat for Humanity
DifferenceMaker Idea - For a project being proposed to students (and/or faculty) as a social entrepreneurial idea.
Habitat sees the home as the catalyst to breaking the binds of poverty. Investing in Habitat is investing in the community and the futures of our youth. Minority homeownership numbers in Greater Lowell lag the states significantly. Increasing opportunities for minority homeownership is of keen interest to Habitat and also to the City of Lowell as its 2010 survey found homeownership among Black, Hispanic and bi-racial families to be 19% or below. In order to serve these families, Habitat must engage the community more effectively. Recognizing that a vibrant community serves all, how can Habitat engage the citizens, and the students of the community of Lowell to address the need for simple decent affordable housing?
