Safe, decent, affordable shelter breaks the cycle of poverty

HabiJax’s 2017 Women’s Build will provide struggling female head-of-household families in Jacksonville with the strong foundation of homeownership. Upon this foundation, these women can build a stable and self-reliant future for their families.

The 0n-going need in Duval County

  • 25% of households are headed by a single mother.
  • 21% of women are living at the federal poverty level ($23,050 income for a family of four).
  • The Florida Household Survival Budget of $47,484 is an estimate of the income needed for financial stability for a family of four.
  • When households can’t make their budgets work they cut their expenses in risky ways.
