How Habitat Works

.                     Partners donate labor, materials and money to build homes alongside the families who will take ownership of them.

.                    Habitat for Humanity homeowners buy their homes.  They make monthly payments toward a no profit, zero interest mortgage for the cost of the home, as well as payments for escrows (property taxes, homeowners insurance and termite bond). 

.                   Candidates must have a need based on their current living conditions.

.                   Candidates for homeownership must have an ability to pay for a Habitat home.

.                     A selection committee considers applications and approves candidates.

.                    After the family selection committee approves the candidates, they must then attend training courses and complete 275 hours of volunteer sweat equity before moving into their home.
