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.
