15% of Kitsap County’s population is “rent overburdened” and struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Habitat provides these families a pathway to a secure home of their own. They build their homes alongside volunteers and pay a mortgage they can actually afford. The pick-up service offered to Bainbridge Islanders keeps about 150 tons out of the landfill each year. Your household donations help the Habitat Store support our vision of everyone living in a decent home. With each house that becomes a home, a family builds a foundation. With each foundation supporting the next generation, Habitat builds community.
