Habitat builds new homes and rehabilitates vacant homes in partnership with families in need of decent, affordable housing. Qualified homebuyers have the opportunity to purchase a home that is appropriate for the size and composition of your household. Habitat does not build custom homes. To keep the homes affordable, Habitat cannot accept custom design requests, but homebuyers often have the opportunity to select home finishings such as flooring and cabinets.
Habitat does not own or manage any rental properties.
Our Critical Repair program improves accessibility, safety, and weatherization for homeowners in need. Repairs or additions (like accessibility ramps) are considered critical to enabling the homeowner to continue living in the home and whose retail cost would otherwise fall between $501 and $5,000. Repairs are completed at 50% of retail cost. Families make monthly payments at zero interest for up to five years and receive up to an additional 30% discount for early payment.
