Habitat for Humanity provides a unique opportunity for families to build and buy their own homes. Our houses are sold below market value to families who qualify for a monthly housing payment that is no more than 30% of their monthly income. We work closely with our partner families to provide them with the knowledge and tools they need to become successful homeowners and we’re with them every step of the way to offer support and guidance. To become a homeowner, applicants must meet income and credit requirements, have a manageable level of debt, and be willing to complete up to 300 hours of sweat equity helping to build their home alongside our construction team and volunteers.
