Habitat for Humanity achieves No. 6 on the ‘Builder 100’ list

Due to the combined building efforts of U.S. affiliates, volunteers and donors, Habitat for Humanity International ranks as the sixth largest homebuilder in the United States, with 6,032 closings in 2010, according to Builder magazine’s annual survey. Each year, the magazine compiles information from U.S. builders and lists the top 100.

Even in these difficult times, Habitat’s 2010 home closings increased. Through the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative and with Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds, affiliates have purchased and rehabilitated foreclosed properties to turn them into affordable housing in partnership with low-income families and to strengthen neighborhoods affected by the current housing market. Habitat helped an additional 2,327 families with repairs to their homes in the United States.
