Habitat for Humanity in Wimberley strives to build a new Habitat home each year. Habitat home ownership transforms the lives of our Habitat Partner Families. Habitat Partners express with deep feeling what it means to experience the love of a caring community of people that give of themselves to help another be able to own a home of their own. The lives of Habitat homeowners improve in unexpected ways. Often with better jobs, children earning better grades and a desire to go further in school. Habitat encourages pride of home ownership and participation in the community as responsible citizens.
