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.
