I have heard that habitat's homes can drive down property values. So for that reason, I am against most of their building efforts. Okay, it's one thing to want to help someone, but I believe it should be done in areas that already have lower property values. It should not be forced into places where existing home's values might be hurt. What's next, will Habitat build in West County? Or perhaps that is an area that is exempt from this. Hmmm....

Agree with Andie........
Good cause, I guess. We saw two of their homes being built (one done and the other almost done) in a new subdivision while vacationing in one of our favorite places out west this year. Some of the people we spoke with already living there (with very nice homes) were not too happy. Supposedly, every new subdivision there now must have at least two homes built by Habitat (or something similar)......kind of weird to me.

Well this just proves that Habitat for Humanity is just another social integration experiment disguised as "help." Why would they chose St. Peters to build homes? They could have built four homes for every one they build in St. Peters if they built in North County or North St. Louis. But instead of building homes and helping more people they try to move people into a neighborhood they personally can not afford. Once these $250,000 homes are built who is going to pay the extremely high St. Peters property tax and the upkeep for the homes?

I wish all of you would educate yourselves a bit more before spreading your ignorance to the rest of the world! All Habitat families are hard working families and pay a mortgage. Habitat is NOT a government supported program and families make their payments without assistance. The 30 year interest free mortgage is set up to make housing affordable in places like St. Charles County where it is not. Do you know that even in St. Charles there are hundreds of homeless working families? Habitat builds where there is a need and that is everywhere. I am sad for these families who work hundreds of hours on their homes that they are forced to live next to people who are narrow minded and selfish. Just imagine yourself losing your job, or having a health crisis, you could one day need help too! Remember that Habitat is a Christian housing ministry doing Gods work for Gods people in need!

You closed minded folk should educate yourselves better with research to the topic you are trying to skew the facts on.

Poor people = crime = decreased property value. So they work, at crappy unskilled jobs. They send their sick, idiot kids to public school, and drag down entire classes. Meanwhile, I pay interest on my mortgage, and the equity in my house goes away because there is a family up the street, who even with their interest free loan, can't afford to live in a house. They can't/don't maintain it. So they supplement their income by selling some weed or meth out of there at night. Their dumbass kids terrorize the neighborhood because the parents are working odd shifts, or have to have a 6 pack each after work and don't care what their kids are doing
You bleeding heart women who want to save the world should build these houses next to your own, see how quickly your tune changes. If they want jobs, health care and housing-the U.S. Army is hiring.

It is amazing to me how a few narrow minded self serving racist/bigots can use such a sweeping generalization to condemn a whole group of people. You small minded poor excuses for human beings are sickening.

These comments both sadden and disgust me. As a supporter of Habitat in St. Louis, I firmly believe that affordable housing is needed everywhere. The families HFH serves are hard-working families who despite working sometimes more than one job cannot afford decent housing. Many are also part time students working to better themselves while also working to make ends meet. Those making narrow minded comments could LEARN much from these indivduals.
