Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to provide “strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter” across the world. Homes are essential to the proper growth and functioning of individuals. Because of the current unpredictable and unaffordable housing market, many individuals struggle to find a place they are happy to call home. When you donate a car to Habitat for Humanity, you’ll help new and future homeowners in your community through builds, home improvements, and modifications. The Cars for Homes program has raised over $30 million in the last five years. Click here or call 1-877-277-4344 to start your Habitat for Humanity car donation!
