Our home-ownership program provides opportunities for low-income individuals and families to increase their independence and economic well-being through affordable home-ownership.
Families and individuals in need of decent, affordable housing apply for homeownership as home applications begin to be taken. Each local Habitat’s family selection committee selects homeowners based on three criteria:
As part of their willingness to partner, Habitat’s homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners.
Habitat for Humanity follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity is a factor in choosing Habitat’s homeowners. We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation.
We are currently taking preliminary applications for a veteran in need of affordable housing. The one-month application period is open to a Veteran who has served in any of the United States military branches and qualifies under the program’s three basic requirements.
“Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Build program recognizes the unique housing challenges veterans face as they return to civilian life,” SCVHFH Executive Director Kristie Smith said. “We believe every veteran deserves to be welcomed home with dignity, honor and respect. This program serves military veterans in need of safe, affordable shelter.”
Application requirements include need, ability to pay an affordable mortgage and willingness to contribute sweat equity (volunteer hours) to the project.
Applications will be accepted through February 29. Applications and the Veterans Build flyer indicating income requirements are available by download below.
