HABITAT HOMES ARE...
OUR HABITAT PARTNER FAMILIES
When selected for a Habitat Home, our partner families put in over 300 to 500 “sweat equity” hours by doing volunteer work or working directly on their home. After receiving the Habitat Home, our homeowners pay a 0%-interest mortgage for their home at an affordable monthly payment.
3 CRITERIA FOR CHOOSING OUR FAMILIES
The process may take several weeks if not months to complete. These are the several steps that must be completed:
- INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS HELD
First of all, interested applicants must attend a required informational class. During this meeting, the Family Services Committee will explain the housing process, requirements, and opportunities. Additionally, applications will be distributed at this time and questions will be answered.
- APPLICATIONS ARE SUBMITTED AND REVIEWED
DO NOT turn in an application if you have not gone to a required informational class from HFHWD. Applications may be filled out online or printed out and filled. Applications may be dropped off or mailed to our main office on or before the deadline. Our Family Services Committee then reviews applications for completeness. Applicants will be verified and determined if they are eligible.
- HOME INTERVIEWS
Third of all, members of the Family Services Committee will schedule home interviews. This will allow the committee to verify eligibility.
- PRESENTATION TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Furthermore, eligible applicants are presented to the Board of Directors for final approval.
- SELECTION OF PARTNER FAMILY
Lastly, eligible applicants are chosen to become Habitat partner families. These homeowners join the Habitat Family Partnership Program. Habitat partner families will first attend first-time home buyer courses and budgeting classes. Habitat partner families will start to apply and complete their “sweat equity” hours.
