How does Habitat work?

Apply for the program

Future homeowners who live or work in our service area are selected based on 3 criteria:

  1. a need for affordable housing,
  2. the ability to repay an affordable mortgage, and
  3. a willingness to partner with Habitat.

Complete sweat equity

Once approved, future homeowners are required to complete "sweat equity" hours. These hours include volunteering on the construction site and attending workshops to help them prepare for homeownership.

Buy a Home

Once construction is completed, thanks to the support of donors, volunteers, and sponsors, the homeowner makes a down payment and then begins making affordable monthly mortgage payments toward their home.
