How its possible
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner (partner) families.
*Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and
monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their
own labor(sweat equity) into building their Habitat house and the houses
* Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable mortgages at no interest.
* The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses!
How are partner families selected?
Families in need of affordable shelter apply to local Habitat affiliates. The Affiliates Family Selection Committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the loan. Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Currently we have closed the application process for our new home in 2015. Please try again for mid 2015 for our 2016 homes.
What are Habitat affiliates?
Community-level Habitat for Humanity offices act in partnership with and on behalf of Habitat for Humanity International. Each affiliate is an independently run, nonprofit organization. Affiliates coordinate all aspects of Habitat home building in its local area-fund raising, building site selection, partner family selection and support, house construction, and mortgage servicing.
Where does Habitat for Humanity operate?
*Locally, YOU have a Habitat for Humanity Affiliate
