Dow and Habitat recognize that affordable housing is one of the world's most pressing challenges, and together have been building comfortable, affordable homes and changing lives. Collaborating since 1983, Dow became the first national partner 10 years later, and for more than three decades has provided financial, volunteer and product contributions.
Dow's commitment and contributions reach beyond science and technology. We employ our expertise to deliver solutions that help provide sustainable, affordable housing to low-income families. Dow lends support to Habitat in many ways, including house sponsorships, product donations and employee volunteer work crews at builds.
What began as a modest, employee-led grassroots effort has grown into one of Dow's most significant service initiatives and one of Habitat's largest corporate relationships. The result is a legacy of not just building homes, but providing affordable, sustainable houses for low-income families in communities around the globe.
Dow provides insulation and air sealing products for Habitat builds throughout North America. By donating energy-saving products like STYROFOAM™ Brand Insulation and GREAT STUFF PRO™ Insulating Foam Sealants, Dow is helping Habitat give new homeowners the opportunity to reduce monthly utility bills by helping make their homes more energy efficient.
