A home is just the beginning. While our mission at Habitat for Humanity is to end poverty housing in Monroe County through affordable housing, we also recognize that educational opportunities are inextricably linked to the same battle. It is our hope that with the stability of a Habitat home, homeowners and their children will find themselves reaching goals that they had previously never thought possible. As our homeowners strive to fulfill their personal goals, we are proud to offer a yearly scholarship to assist in their education.
The Hart & Home Scholarship is named in honor of Habitat volunteer Jennifer Hart, who demonstrates an exemplary spirit and commitment to a better Monroe County. Jennifer’s dedication has inspired a yearly gift of $2,500 to fund a college-bound or enrolled student from a Habitat home.
