Habitat Serves More Than 400,000 Families

Despite a troubled economy, Habitat for Humanity is celebrating a milestone this year, serving more than 400,000 families with affordable housing in a little less than 35 years.

“We are very grateful to all those who helped Habitat for Humanity serve almost 75,000 families worldwide last year—almost triple the number of five years ago,” CEO Jonathan Reckford said in Habitat’s fiscal year 2010 annual report, “What We Build.”

Habitat’s goal is 100,000 families served a year by 2013.
