Own a Home

Interested in buying a home of your own? You’ve come to the right place.

How it works:

  • Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds alongside our homeowner partner families.
  • Habitat is not a giveaway program. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable mortgages.
  • Homeowners invest hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
