About this organization






Provide home ownership opportunities to people whose incomes fall between 30% - 60% of area median income as set by HUD. This is a population that does not qualify for first-time buyer programs and would have no other means of buying a home. Homeowners qualify on the basis of housing and economic need, their ability to pay the 0% interest mortgage, and their willingness to partner with Habitat by working 200-350 hours of sweat equity building their own home and other Habitat homes. At completion the homeowner assumes the long-term mortgage for the cost of the home. Costs are kept affordable by through donations and volunteers. We also seek donations or discounts of materials and required professional services, such as electrical, plumbing, etc.
