Habitat for Humanity + Install America: The Start of Something Great!
Habitat for Humanity & Install America team up to revitalize Berks County
Months into our collaboration with Habitat for Humanity, doors are up and windows are installed! Although efforts to revitalize the home have been successful, there is a long journey ahead.
We hope you’ll join us to be a part of the effort to provide families with a place to live. Take a look at the progress our team has made since partnering with Habitat for Humanity, and click the link at the bottom of the page to see how you can help out.
Who is Habitat for Humanity of Berks County?
In Reading, 40% of the population lives in poverty. Habitat for Humanity recognized these devastating statistics, and in 1988, the non-profit began tackling the need to provide Berks County families with a place to live. Since then, their focus on changing lives and transforming communities led them to complete 60+ projects.
It goes beyond having a beautiful new home to live in. On average, impacted homeowners have been able to remain stable for years. By putting an emphasis on education, children have been able to score higher in math and reading. 62% of those children have been able to move onto higher education after graduating thanks in part to the efforts of Habitat For Humanity. Install America hopes to increase Habitat’s impact and support in any way possible.
Install America’s Contributions
As of today, Install America has provided Windows, Doors, and Labor. In addition to providing building supplies, we have also initiated efforts to help raise money for Habitat. Our goal is to spread the word and grow support as much as possible!
The peeling paint and shoddy structure of the home above represent the struggle of Reading. But the good people at Habitat For Humanity continue to give us hope – and they continue pushing forward one day at a time. Install America supports this hope and is proud to support efforts with Habitat for Humanity of Berks County.
