A family in need of decent shelter should apply to their local Habitat affiliate. Each affiliate’s family selection committee chooses families based on their level of need, their willingness to partner with Habitat, and their ability to repay their mortgage loan. Affiliates follow a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection; neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing families to become Habitat homeowners.
If your family, or a family you know, is in need of decent, affordable housing, contact a local Habitat affiliate. See the map of affiliates. They can give you information on the availability, size, costs and sweat-equity requirements for Habitat homes in their area and information about the application process.
