HOMEOWNERSHIP

Families looking to become homeowners partner with Habitat to build a decent, affordable place to call home. Habitat homeowners not only buy a home, but they’ll gain the stability and security that comes with it and a strong foundation for generations to come. Homeowners are selected based on the severity of their present housing conditions, their willingness to partner with Habitat, and their ability to repay the cost of a Habitat home. Partner homeowners also receive counseling and training on homeownership and maintenance. Homeowners buy their completed homes from Habitat for Humanity and repay them over 30 years through an affordable mortgage.
