Apply for a Home

Are you:

  • A working family with children under 18 and two years of recent work experience?
  • Living in sub-standard and/or unsafe housing conditions?
  • Willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity by volunteering?

If so, you may qualify to partner with Habitat for Humanity!

As a not-for-profit organization, Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to the elimination of inadequate housing by building homes in partnership with families in need. We believe in giving a hand-up and not a hand-out. Habitat partner families contribute to the construction of their own homes and then repay a long-term, no-interest and no down-payment mortgage.

Criteria for becoming a Habitat Partner

Habitat Partner families are chosen on the basis of the following:

• Need for safe, decent, affordable homeownership
• Ability to repay a no-interest, no down-payment mortgage
• Willingness to work in partnership with Habitat
