Our mission is to create partnerships in South Collin County to provide decent, affordable homes for deserving families while building foundations for community.
How can there be a need for housing in wealthy Collin County?
Habitat for Humanity of South Collin County's service area includes Plano, Allen, Trinity Park, Lucas, Wylie, Murphy, Parker, Lowry Crossing, Fairview, Saint Paul, and their rural areas - approximately 400 square miles.
This area's population of 659,457 has the highest median income ($74,333) of any county in Texas. In fact, Collin County has the 17th highest median income in the US (2004 US census figures).
And yet, approximately 36,000 families in the county have incomes below $45,000 per year, and 31% of renters in our area pay more than 30% of their annual income for rent. 5% of those persons live below the poverty level as defined in the US census. Click here (pdf).
