  • "Oh my, they are all so special to me. Every dedication is so heartwarming due to the need of them needing a home. They all have very special stories like where they’ve come from and how they are improving their lives daily. Every dedication is a good day and a great memory."
    ~Cathy Beaver, Special Events Chair for the Calico Cut-Ups Quilt Guild

  • Habitat Homeowners
  • "Home ownership through Habitat for Humanity has provided me with the foundation my children and I needed for a brighter future. Through the process of working on your home you gain knowledge of money management, volunteer work and to set and achieve goals you never thought possible. I can now provide my children with a forever home at an affordable price and build a life full of wonderful memories. It is a dream come true!"
    ~Sheena, Habitat Homeowner

  • "I am so very grateful to God and Habitat for Humanity for the opportunity to call myself a home owner. I relocated to Bentonville in 2012 and stressed about how I would manage to pay a high rent payment and utilities. Being a single mother with only one income, I didn’t have very many options here other than low income apartments. Then I heard about Habitat and I am so happy I did. I have been in my house for almost 4 years, where I am able to provide a stable home for my daughter plus meet all her needs without struggling. I thank you Habitat for all you do because without you and God there is no telling where I would be."
    ~Kimberly, Habitat Homeowner

  • Habitat Board and Staff
  • “I was touched by the desire of a homeowner to return to college and her amazing gratitude when we were able to award her a scholarship to make it happen. Habitat continues to help families in poverty change their lives with a home and beyond.”
    ~Cindy Acree, Habitat for Humanity of Benton County Executive Director

  • The look on the children's faces when they see their room for the first time is priceless. It makes everything we do worth that much more. Being a part of Habitat for Humanity not only blesses our new families, but blesses us as well. Proverbs 11:25 The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.
    ~Mark Kendall

  • "I love seeing the confidence that an affordable home can provide to someone that didn’t think they could get one before. Being able to be a part of this in our local community is a blessing in my life and motivates me to do what I can to help instill that confidence in more people’s lives!"
    ~Tommy Lowden, Habitat Board Secretary

  • “The majority of nonprofits have meaningful albeit brief interactions with their constituents. Habitat is completely different in that we go into significant depth with our families before, during, and after the build. We are often in relationships with our families for 30-35 years from start to finish. That kind of depth is what makes us unique, that’s what it takes to achieve real impact and generational change.”
