Affordable Housing for people in Need”
- Habitat for Humanity Motto
How does Habitat work?
Through volunteer labor, monetary and material donations, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partners.
In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest 400 hours of personal labor building their Habitat house, with the opportunity to help others in later Habitat builds. The partner family will make between 30 and 60% of the Average Median Income for the county. For a family of four, this is roughly between $27,000 and $37,000.
Habitat houses are sold to homeowner partners at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
The homeowner's monthly mortgage payments are reinvested into building more Habitat houses.
Additionally, Habitat raises funds from sales at its retail outlet, the ReStore.
