Changing Lives

When you volunteer with Central Oklahoma Habitat, you’re helping build possibility and opportunity.  You’re helping families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security.  Central Oklahoma Habitat’s affordable, zero-interest mortgages free up money for food, childcare, medicine and other family necessities.  

The excitement in the air at our home dedications is palpable.  As a volunteer, you have a front-row seat to the transformation in our homeowners, especially the children.  The family has a secure place to call home and the children are excited to have a bedroom and a backyard that provide a safer place to play.

Research has shown that decent housing and homeownership improves health, increases children’s educational achievement, and strengthens community ties.
