Since becoming a Habitat homeowner, Jodi has seen a vast improvement in the health of her two daughters, "Our lives are so much better. My children have allergies and they use much less medications. My oldest daughter has asthma and she has not had to use her inhaler since we moved in."
Since 1993. Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity has partnered with 35 families to provide simple, decent, safe, affordable homes. Each and every day, those families enjoy improved health, education, and personal well being.
The now-adult children of eight of 13 GCHFH homeowner families are attending or have recently graduated from college or technical school. All GCHFH homeowner families with eligible children are participating in the Imagination Library program. It is unlikely that any of the children who grew up in Habitat homes will themselves become Habitat homeowners – our program interrupts the cycle of poverty.
