There is an organization that helps make that dream come true for thousands of people across the country and an organization that has helped make that dream come true for many people in the Texas Panhandle.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is an organization that helps build safe, affordable housing for qualified low-income families.  The Amarillo chapter was founded in 1981 and since then they have helped 118 families in the Amarillo area community.

As with any non-profit organization, it is funded by donations from community members and grants.

Amarillo's Habitat for Humanity has an opportunity to receive a grant of up to $350,000, but in order to obtain a grant, they need the help of the Texas Panhandle Community.

The organization with the help of Chick-Fil-A on Georgia and Operator Joshua Raef, has been named a regional finalist for the 2024 Chick-Fil-A Inspiration Awards.   AHFH is the only non-profit in the Amarillo area nominated.

“I am excited for Amarillo Habitat for Humanity for becoming a Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Award finalist. This is a great honor, with only a few organizations in the entire Southwest United States receiving the award every year. AHFH has long done amazing work for our community, showing incredible care to the families they serve. This award is well deserved and I was proud to sponsor AHFH in their application,” says Raef. “It is an immense honor to be named a Regional Finalist and represent the Texas Panhandle. Our area has a long, consistent history of philanthropic work and some of the best nonprofit organizations in the nation.
