“Many families living in substandard housing dream about one stability in their lives – a decent place they can call home,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO, Habitat for Humanity International. “With the help of our donors, volunteers and advocates, we continue to make a difference by changing lives and transforming communities. Together, our efforts set the foundation for success, including better health, education and employment opportunities. As we celebrate the lives we have touched through adequate housing, we look forward to another year of creating safe and secure places for families to grow, be healthy and thrive.”

The table below provides a snapshot of Habitat’s efforts in fiscal year 2016 across more than 70 countries through direct housing solutions, including new home construction, rehabilitation, incremental improvements, repairs or increased access to improved shelter through partnerships with the private sector.

Habitat also provided training in construction and financial management as well as advocacy efforts that changed policies and systems to allow more access to shelter solutions. Through these services, an additional 2.1 million individuals now have the potential to improve their housing conditions.

Habitat’s global mission was made possible thanks to its many generous donors and the hands and hearts of more than 1.8 million volunteers who annually give their time and talent. In addition to working on Habitat build sites, volunteers also served as local board members, in Habitat for Humanity ReStores and through affordable housing advocacy efforts.

Since its founding 40 years ago, Habitat has seen the tremendous impact that affordable housing has on helping people create better lives for themselves and their families. The fiscal year 2016 annual report highlights the many ways in which Habitat homeowners have experienced how a decent home with an affordable mortgage or a home improved incrementally over time through small loans can build stronger, more stable families.

    All I have to say is that Mr. lizuka, sir you should geeilarnze all old Sonic fans that way. Because I am an old Sonic fan I for one am not that hard to please. This also goes for the other series I like such as Mario and Donkey Kong series. One way that I am not hard to please is that I accepted the shunned by many Shadow the hedgehog game.
