Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County (HFHWC) has been providing services to individuals and families in Williamson County since 1999, beginning with its home-ownership program and subsequently through its ReStore and home repair programs.

HFHWC is partnering with the Texas Institute for Child & Family Wellbeing to conduct an evaluation of the economic, safety and health impact of home ownership through its home-ownership program for families in the program. This will include a) gathering and developing appropriate measures of the economic, safety and health impact of home ownership program, and satisfaction, b) designing a phone interview protocol, c) conducting phone interviews and, if necessary, in person interviews with families served by HFHWC, and d) analyzing and reporting on data collected.

This project aims to 1) evaluate the satisfaction level of families served by the home-ownership program and 2) document the economic, safety and health impact of home ownership through its home-ownership program.
