A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out
We believe in offering a hand up out of poverty housing, not a hand out. We’re on a mission to provide affordable housing and our homeowners join this mission. Our Habitat Homeowners put in hundreds of hours of both training and volunteering before purchasing their home through Habitat. As a Habitat homeowner applicant, you’ll learn about budgeting and home maintenance and you’ll help other families achieve their dreams of homeownership too! If you are interested in becoming a Habitat homeowner, please first read the requirements below to see if you may qualify.
The selection of families who purchase Habitat homes is considered by the Family Selection Committee with final approval from the Habitat Board of Directors, using criteria that does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, age, handicap, religion, marital status, or because all or part of the applicant’s income is derived from public assistance programs.
