About Habitat Homes
Habitat for Humanity does not give away houses. Our partner families buy their houses with a 25-year interest free mortgage and all of the issues that accompany a mortgage, except interest.
We build houses from the bottom up. We start with a vacant lot, dig the hole, lay the foundation, frame the house, roof it, and prepare the inside for occupancy.
All of the labor is volunteer, except for the plumbing and electrical work, which must be done by licensed professionals. In those cases we pay for service, but appreciate donated professional services, whenever possible.
About Building Homes
A Habitat House is a beautiful, well constructed, home. If you need a decent place to live and you are willing to make a commitment to working with us, let’s work together to make take a step up with our “hand up.” It is a lot of work, but it can make a new life for you and your family.
