How it works

We partner with working families to help them afford a home. Our path to homeownership requires hard work, time and dedication, but this helps ensure the long-term success of the families we partner with.

Families who apply and are accepted to become Habitat homeowners purchase their home through an affordable mortgage and contribute at least 500 volunteer hours to Habitat.
