Your Year-End Gift Builds So Much More Than a House!
This Christmas, do you have a blessing to spare?
Like you, low-income families in East Kentucky have hopes and dreams, and at Christmas, you often feel the sadness of not having something much more deeply than at any other time. So many of us take for granted the simple joys of being home and of being able to gather with those we love in our own home. Having a safe, quality home is one of our most basic needs, but it is one that so many lack.
This holiday season, give a gift that will have a lasting impact on an Appalachian East Kentucky family and on the community in which they live. A good home offers a door to so much more - family security, financial stability, and the freedom to live within one's dreams instead of on the outside looking in.
You can light the way home for so many families in need! Every gift received is put to immediate use, because hundreds of families are working towards homeownership, over one hundred need to improve the home they have, and dozens more contact us each week for help. The need is so great, and we can't make the difference that is needed without you.
When you give, you'll be helping more families like Chris's. Chris and his wife, Brandy, never thought they'd be able to afford a new home. The couple was tired of paying rent on a small trailer they could never own. But then, they heard about the Housing Development Alliance and came looking for a helping hand, which is exactly what they found. Now, after working with us over the last year, they have a beautiful new home in Knott County, KY that they helped build and are celebrating their first Christmas there!

Chris said, "The people who support HDA are giving people like us a fighting chance."
If you have a blessing to spare this year, pass it on to the families who need it most. Families that are not waiting for a handout, but who need a hand up. A quality, lasting home helps families become more a part of their local community and gives them the solid foundation they need on which to build a better life.
Your gift builds so much more than a house - it builds a home, answers prayers, fulfills someone's greatest hope, and lights the way into the future.
Thank you for giving and for supporting our mission to transform lives and build a brighter future for our community through affordable housing!
