Willingness to Partner with Habitat:
Habitat Homeowners are not just engaged with Habitat while building a home, but throughout their entire home ownership. Partners are:
- Willing and able to pay an affordable mortgage to cycle back into the community to help build additional Habitat homes
- Ready to invest in our community and take pride in a better future
- Willing to attend an information session and learn about Habitat home ownership
- Willing to complete sweat equity to help build their home
Our homebuyers put in hundreds of hours of “sweat equity,” which means they help build their own home and the homes of others in the Habitat for Humanity house building program, or volunteer at a Habitat ReStore. These prerequisite hours may also include classes in personal finances, home maintenance and other relevant topics to help ensure capability for the demands of owning a home.
