Habitat is not a give-away program.  Habitat homeowners are expected to be participants in the entire process.  The homes are sold under the terms of no-profit construction and no-interest mortgages.  To ensure successful homeownership, each family is assigned a family support partner to assist them.  You and your family support partner work as a team to help ensure successful transition to homeownership.

 

Selection Criteria:

  1. NEED: There must be a demonstrated need for housing (e.g. Substandard Housing, Over Crowded Housing, or Overly Expensive Housing).

  2. ABILITY TO PAY: Your income must meet the guidelines listed in the pre-qualification checklist.

  3. WILLINGNESS TO PARTNER: The Family should be willing to help with the construction of their home, and take advice on financial matters.
