By addressing poor living conditions, we alleviate one of the root issues of poverty. Poverty starts at home and can create a cycle that is difficult to break. Poor living conditions have serious impacts on physical and mental health, and academic performance among children. When we complete a home repair project for someone in need, we provide a sense of hope and relief which in turn can help them succeed in other areas of life. HCO is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty within our local community, by improving where and how people in need live.
