2019 Global Impact Report
Lives Forever Changed.
U.S. Habitat organizations tithed more than $14,560,000 in fiscal year 2019, which translates to 3,235 additional families living in safe and decent housing. This support is well beyond the $14 million tithed in fiscal year 2018. In addition, U.S. Habitat organizations provided increased support for Habitat’s priority countries and priority funds.
Our Global Impact.
Tillamook County Habitat for Humanity (TCHFH) helped changed many families through our Global Building Program. Every year a set percentage of all unrestricted funds are used to build homes internationally leaving 90% of funds raised stay in the local community. The tithe is designated to a Global Mission Fund through Habitat International where 100% of the money is sent to help build homes for families living in priority countries such as: Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Nepal, Haiti, Ethiopia, & Bangladesh.
A housing solution costs on average $4,500 internationally so the tithe money is able to stretch to make the most impact.
In addition to being a financial supporter of the most vulnerable countries, Executive Director Cami Aufdermauer and Board of Directors President Debbie Carr traveled to Vietnam in 2019 and helped build alongside an incredible family of six. With their makeshift home falling down around them and the flood waters rising, this family was in fear for their lives. This was when Habitat volunteers from all over the world stepped in to lend a helping hand making a reality of a brighter future for generations to come.
Home is Key.
This nearly completed home in Vietnam will house a family of six (three generations).
