Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Habitat for Humanity doesn’t give away homes. We sell homes to a low-income families who have completed a rigorous application process. Our typical homeowner falls between 30% – 80% of the median household income, but would have difficulty receiving financing through traditional bank lending. They must complete 350 hours of “sweat equity” on their home, or other projects we have under construction. In order to make the home more affordable CWHFH often will finance the purchase with a zero-percent mortgage, but the homeowner is responsible for making on-time payments, just as with a traditional bank mortgage.
Habitat for Humanity gives a “hand up, not a hand out.” We help hardworking, low-income families achieve the American Dream of owning a home.
