Become A Homeowner
Habitat for Humanity housing is designed to serve potential home-buyers who meet specific eligibility criteria.
In order to receive an application, potential Habitat homeowners must first attend a Home-buyer Information Meeting. The meeting will inform potential homeowners about Habitat’s mission, the eligibility requirements for Habitat home ownership, and the application process. Those who believe they are eligible will then be able to apply at the meeting.
Our next home-buyer meetings will be in Spring of 2017. Please enter your information in the fields below if you wish to receive updates on these meetings. When we have further information on the dates, times and locations, we will let you know.
