Did You Know 1 in 4 People Are Homeless?
Every season Scentsy partners with a charitable organization to share our time, love and resources. This season Scentsy has chosen Habitat for Humanity and they have created this charming warmer shaped like a home to honor what Habitat for Humanity does, give homes to families in need.
Habitat For Humanity
Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots community farm in Georgia. The first homeowners were a family with 5 children living in an uninsulated shack with no plumbing. The concept for Habitat for Humanity is to provide shelter for families in need of affordable, safe and adequate shelter. The future homeowner works beside volunteers to help build their home from the ground up. Then the homeowner’s would also pay a no interest mortgage.
Habitat for Humanity Has built over 800,000 homes in the US and in 70 countries. They are the leading global nonprofit organization in the world! That is a pretty big accomplishment!
Habitat for Humanity Helps in Many Ways
Not only to the build houses from the ground up but Habitat for Humanity also helps improve or repair existing homes. They also have Disaster Response volunteers to help with natural disasters around the world. The organization also helps individuals with financial planning and budgeting.
One of Habitat for Humanity’s main concern is to provide affordable housing to families. Studies show a link between housing quality and the well-being of children. Also shown are improved grades and better finances in Habitat homes. So there is a direct connection between safe affordable housing and the well-being of families.
To bring awareness to this cause Habitat for Humanity meet with legislators and housing regulators to increase support for affordable and decent housing. They also monitor public policy related to the housing community closely and advocate for acceptable homes. Habitat’s work is constantly evolving.
Habitat for Humanity is a global non-profit ecumenical Christian organization that have high ethics and standards. They do accept government funds but only if there is no conditions attached that violate their Christian identity. Their mission is: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Hardships on Families
With unpredictable rent increases, over crowding and lack of affordable financing it is so hard to find decent housing for most families. This puts unnecessary financial hardship on adults creating the burden of stress. Building these homes play a critical role in making new possibilities and a better life for families all over the world.
