How does Habitat work?

Apply

Apply for the program

Future homeowners who live or work in our service area are selected based on 3 basic 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 to build their home and the homes of others and attending workshops to help prepare them for homeownership.

Become Homeowners

Construction is completed thanks to the support of donors, volunteers and sponsors. Homeowners make a down payment and begin making payments towards their affordable home.

"Everyone who gets sleepy at night should have a simple decent place to lay their heads, on terms they can afford to pay."
