Habitat for Humanity, powered by volunteers in local communities like ours worldwide, has been building homes in partnership with families in need for more than thirty years.
Habitat is not a giveaway program. We offer partner families a no-interest mortgage for their home. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, the homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor (sweat equity) into building their new home.
Families selected are those who need simple, decent housing, but who are unable to get a loan through any conventional means. Read more about how a family can apply and be selected here. Read our mission statement to learn more about Habitat.
