Own A Home

The happiness and security of homeownership

Become a homeowner

Habitat homes are built in partnership with the homebuyer(s) and the community.

Become a homeowner through a rewarding experience of dedicating your time and effort for a better future.

A qualifying family pays for their home through an affordable mortgage with down payment assistance and by completing sweat-equity hours. Each Habitat homebuyer must complete 250 hours of sweat equity per applicant.
