An Open Letter to Habitat for Humanity

8 Jan

Hi, I’ve been researching your website, which says things like “everyone deserves a home” and “providing homes for low-income”, but according to your qualifications, people living in poverty, low-income housing, or homeless in Massachusetts do not qualify.  Indeed, I make too much money to qualify for food stamps, but not enough money to qualify for your home.  Does that mean I’m less than humanity?

It feels misleading when you tell the public your homes are for low income, but those who are low income don’t actually qualify because they don’t make enough money.
So I’m trying to figure out who in the pioneer valley is actually benefiting from your program?  People volunteering for your charity seem to be led to believe that they are providing homes for the homeless, which they are not.  Could you please give me some clarification.
