How to be a Habitat Homeowner
Family Services Liaison
We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the
achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We
encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program
in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race,
color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age,
marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
Partner families account access
“Owning a home has been more positive than I ever
imagined. I love the freedom to let the kids play outside without having
to worry. I haven’t ever had that before.” – Kristin, Habitat homeowner
Habitat for Humanity believes that all hard-working individuals and families
should have access to the benefits and stability of homeownership. In this
belief, we are committed to partnering with families to build simple, decent,
and affordable housing.
The low cost of our homes is made possible by the exceptional support of our
community. Building costs remain low thanks to impressive donations and generous
volunteerism. These factors make it possible to sell our homes to accepted families
with a 0% interest loan and at no profit.
If you or someone you know is interested in applying to be a homeowner through
Habitat for Humanity, please consider our three criteria:
Need for Housing
Ability to Pay
Willingness to Partner
Overview of the Process for Buying a Habitat Home
- After determining that you meet our three criteria, please attend one of our homeowner information meetings. You can get an application by attending a monthly Homeowner Program Meeting.
- Our Family Selection Committee with then review your application and hold a home interview to determine your approval for homeownership.
- Once approved, you will be asked to sign a Covenant Agreement and make a modest deposit toward your home.
- Your are then eligible to start earning sweat equity. At minimum, each adult family member will be required to complete four hours per week. Often a build lot offering is based on which family has the most sweat equity accrued. So have fun, and start sweating!
- Once your family reaches the top of the sweat equity list, you will be offered a build lot, at which time you will start working on your own home's progress!
