Home Features

  • Need is defined as living in a house that is substandard, overcrowded or not affordable.

  • Family income is between 30-60% of median for the area. The committee does look at income and credit history.

  • Sweat equity is the energy and time that families bring to the Habitat ministry. Each family is required to put in 350 hours of sweat equity as part of their willingness to partner. Some of these hours are homebuyer training, but most hours are on the worksite. 

How to Qualify

  • The Family Selection Committee conducts a preliminary review of each application via a blind process based on objective criteria. Applicants must be willing to partner with Habitat, be able to pay a mortgage, be able to maintain a home, and to demonstrate a housing need. Applicants then must undergo a credit and back ground check. The committee’s ultimate goal is to identify and select individuals who would be good partners, successful homeowners, and positive Habitat representatives in the community. Partner families must complete 350 "sweat equity" hours in building their home and in attending homeownership training classes.
