Open Doors

Open Doors is Habitat’s 5-year, $4 million campaign to build 30 homes! 


Open Doors is shaping Habitat’s future, empowering our team with the tools we need to serve more families through affordable homeownership. The initiative seeks to raise $4 million to increase of our construction output by 50 percent through 2026… and put us in the position to build more for years to come. As our organization enters the final leg of our fundraising effort, we will turn to our shared communities to help us cross the finish line by raising the last $1 million of our total goal.

What We've Raised

Our goal is to raise $4 million by end of this year, which will fund our 30-home build goal. We have $800,000 to go! Our team will look to the community over the coming months to help us cross the finish line. You can designate your gift to Open Doors here or contact Vice President of Development and Communications Amy Balestier at and (223) 444-6415 to discuss a gift that is right and meaningful to you. Together, we can build MORE!

Partner Highlight

Elizabethtown College and its Class of 2028 gave our campaign a huge lift through its Make a Deposit, Make a Difference campaign this spring. For every deposit made by incoming students from Jan 8 through April 13, the school matched it… raising an impressive total of $20,000! Even better, we will have a chance to welcome the newest Blue Jays onto our build sites in the fall. Etown’s motto is Educate for Service, and we appreciate how the campus community lives out their passion through support for Habitat  Way to go, Blue Jays. We are honored to have you as a partner!

How We’re Growing

Already, Open Doors is making a significant impact on our mission. The funds that we’ve raised have allowed us to increase property acquisition and expand our construction team. With such a strong pipeline of projects in our immediate future, we have been able to welcome more homebuyers into our program. Right now, we have 23 families working toward affordable Habitat homeownership… significantly more than anytime in our recent history!
