Why does "Habitat for Humanity" build houses in bad neighborhoods ?
Because Habitat for Humanity's goal is to build up bad neighborhoods and get some nice homes in those areas. Without first starting to get good, responsible people in a neighborhood; then they are never going to be able to have a chance at taking it back adn getting all the drug dealing scum out. This is a great question by the way.

If you build new house on old crack houses and make it a nice neighborhoods then you have built in a nice place.

They are trying to start a new beginning in that neighborhood. Trying to instill something called pride. To clean up a bad neighborhood you have to start somewhere so why not start with "Habitat for Humanity." BTW... Habitat for Humanity is a good thing.

They aren't bad neighborhoods, they are low income neighborhoods. The logic is there, if you think it out. What would be the point of building a house for someone in an affluent neighborhood? They can afford to build their own. By building in a low income neighborhood, they not only benifit the new homeowner, but they also add to the quality of the neighborhood. It has the power of incouraging not only people to move there, but to take pride in their own homes. Thus, it has the power to benifit all.

One thing is that neighborhoods constantly change...they go from good to bad, and back to good again. Seems they are improving on bad areas by building there. Land keeps getting scarcer all the time.

to bring the neighborhood up besides the land is cheap and most people needing a home are grateful no matter where the location to have a place to call home.

I think sometimes people are more comfortable living in a certain neighborhood. And they try to build the houses where people will feel comfortable.

To make it affordable for people who want to get out of the projects or row houses to live in a home of there own.Some people just want something they can call there own.No matter where it is.Some will buy or in most cases,rent to own,until they can totally move to a different home maybe in a better part of the city or town.

The people whom these houses are made for have no where else to go. They are grateful for the house no matter what neighborhood it is in. And hopefully the more nice houses that are built there, the better the neighborhood will turn out.
