Established in Chico, California in 1993
This past year in Paradise, we completed seven homes. Five of the families were impacted by the 2018 Camp Fire. We have much to celebrate, but still more to build! Our goal for 2023 is to complete 8 houses.
Why does homeownership matter? Studies show that homeowners have an average net wealth that is 400% higher than that of renters with similar demographics and earnings, and home equity represents the largest proportion of wealth (34.5%) for U.S. households.
Regardless of the length of time they have owned a home, homeowners are more likely to become involved in a neighborhood group, join a civic association, and more likely to vote in local elections.
Growing up in a decent, affordable home can have a powerful effect on children. Studies draw a straight line between the quality, location, and affordability of housing and a child’s ability to thrive. A decent, affordable home can have a significant impact on a family’s health. Affordability raises a family’s standard of living and relieves the psychological pressure of being forced to make tough trade-offs just to make it through the month.
