Homeowner Survey Report

This report presents the results from the 2013 Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity Homeowner Survey. During the summer of 2013, we surveyed our Partner Families (1,204 Habitat homeowners) about their experiences with Dallas Habitat and with homeownership. Our goal was to better understand the Dallas Habitat Homeownership Program from the homebuyer’s perspective and to evaluate the impact of the program.

Blight Study

In a study commissioned by Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, University of North Texas researchers have identified the most blighted areas of Dallas using a newly created “composite blight index” measurement tool. The study found that high blight areas are a drain on the City’s resources and budget dollars.

Blight to Light Forum
As a result of the blight study Dallas Habitat decided now is the time to have a conversation about blight because it directly affects our families and our neighborhoods.

Community Impact Report

The Community Impact Report provides a snapshot of Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity’s work in six Dallas neighborhoods.  Although these neighborhoods represent just a portion of our work in more than 20 neighborhoods, they reflect the many ways in which we transform communities.

Economic Impact Study

As Dallas Habitat works to accomplish its mission, it also generates millions of dollars of economic activity and supports hundreds of local jobs. An economic impact analysis conducted under the auspices of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University (SMU) looked beyond how Habitat affects individuals and examined its impact on the region. Conducted in the summer and fall of 2010, the study used an input-output model that tracks how spending flows through the region. Dallas Habitat’s direct spending generates spending by firms and individuals, multiplying the impact of its activities.
