What Does the Future Hold for Habitat for Humanity?


Three decades, more than 430 homes. A tough act to follow, but Habitat of Evansville is not done yet. What does the future hold for this group of community members who have a made a difference?

We have seen what has been done for the past three decades. Now what? What will see the next thirty years.
Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Beth Folz, says,  
        “You know, just living in this community makes our job so much easier so we can help to end substandard housing in our area. That’s our real goal is to put ourselves out of business, so to speak, so that’s that’s what we’re really aiming for.”

The need could grow even greater as our aging neighborhoods, those in our Evansville Central Core continue to evolve, and in many cases wither
         “Erie Neighborhood–we got about seven more homes to build in this area and we need sponsors for those that and then we’re going to move to what’s being called, Garfield Commons, which is east of the Deaconess Hospital main campus and that was due to the generosity Deaconess giving us land. So that’s our next big project and you know that’s what we want to do. We want to continue to build healthy neighborhoods and continue to make housing affordable.”
