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.
