Dow and Habitat recognize that affordable housing is one of the world's most pressing challenges, and together have been building great homes and changing lives together since 1983. Dow was Habitat's first corporate partner and 2013 marks Dow's 30th anniversary of financial, volunteer and production contributions.
Dow's commitment and contributions reach beyond science and technology to embrace the Human Element and to help provide sustainable, affordable housing to low-income families. Dow lends support to Habitat in many ways, including house sponsorship, product donation and employee volunteer work crews at builds.
What began as a modest, employee-led grassroots effort in 1983 has grown into one of Dow's most significant service initiatives and one of Habitat's largest corporate relationships - resulting in a legacy of not just building homes, but providing affordable, sustainable homes for low-income families in communities around the globe.
