Habitat's vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat Today

Habitat partners with people in your community and all over the world, helping them build or improve a place they can call home. Working alongside volunteers, Habitat homeowners put in hundreds of “sweat-equity” hours as they help build their own homes. Homeowners then purchase their home and pay an affordable mortgage.

Roof Repair Update

Habitat is proud to say that our repair is complete, though we had a few more obstacles than expected. Thanks to the efforts of the roofing crew, who braved the cold, the job was completed just in time for the New Year. We hope it will be a better year for the homeowner, who can now enjoy it in comfort, be it rain snow sleet or sunshine. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, each of you made a difference, and it’s thanks to all of you that Habitat could make this happen.




 

 

 

 

Looking for affordable housing? Own your home, but need repairs?


 

We build houses, but more than that, we help families improve the skills it takes to be a success in life:

·         Studies  of children ages 5-8 revealed that children of homeowners scored 9% higher in math and 7% higher in reading

·         Studies show that children living in owned homes have fewer behavioral  problems than children whose parents rent housing.

·         Habitat family members become neighborhood leaders, serving in the PTA and community associations.

·         Habitat families are supported through establishing good credit, creating a family budget, purchasing insurance, paying taxes, maintaining property values and many other effective homeownership skills.

We turn families who may not otherwise be able to afford a home of their own into proud homeowners.

============================================================================================================== 

Habitat can also help current lower-income home owners with critical home repair that may be beyond their means. Zero interest loans for needed materials, repayment plans are based on actual ability to pay. Sweat equity options in order to qualify toward partnering with Habitat volunteers in completing the repair project.
