As you read this, a Kent County child is packing up her belongings and preparing to leave her home. This isn’t a move her parents chose. It’s a move forced upon them, often from an unexpected expense, income change, or rising rent. When children start to accept the disruption of instability as the norm, their health and academic success often suffer.
WE KNOW THINGS CAN BE DIFFERENT
Habitat Kent has been changing lives for 35 years by building affordable homes, and more recently, revitalizing neighborhoods. Year after year, we see families flourish when frequent moves are replaced with a permanent home. Anxiety turns into hope. School grades rise. Health improves. Pride develops in a person who has a permanent stake in their neighborhood.
A stable, affordable home can change everything.
