Due to our current backlog, we are not accepting new applications at this time. However, as more houses are built, requests for applications will be advertised in the local newspapers and churches.
How Habitat for Humanity Works
Gifts of capital and materials are provided by volunteers. Houses are then built or renovated for people who do not qualify for conventional home loans. Most labor is done by volunteers and the families selected for the houses. Generally, they pay the purchase price back over a 20-year period, and no interest is charged on the balance due. Since many materials and services are donated, the cost is significantly lower than for conventional housing.
Families are chosen by a Family Selection Committee. The family selection process is impartial and non-discriminatory. Habitat does not discriminate against applicants based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Persons will be selected who are likely to be responsible about house payments and home maintenance, and who will help spread the good news of Habitat to their local community.

Who Builds the Habitat Houses?
House design and construction are overseen by the Construction Committee. The houses are built by volunteers, Habitat home buyers, and other members of the Habitat community, all under the supervision of professional builders.
