|Own a Home|
Family Selection Process
Habitat for Humanity is an organization developed on Christian principles. It works in partnership with people who do not have adequate housing and who desire to own a home. Homes are built with money and labor donated by people in the community. No government funding is used.
Habitat builds basic, practical homes and sells them at cost to the chosen family. The family must repay the full cost of the home to Habitat, through a 0% mortgage. All income from those house payments is used to build more homes.
All applications received will be reviewed by the Family Selection Committee. Those families considered to be eligible will be visited and interviewed by the committee. The committee recommends families to the Board of Directors who makes the final decision.
Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide organization that does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, creed, national origin, disability, age, family or marital status. Families are selected according to the following criteria:
