Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization working locally and in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States, building and improving homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of a decent and affordable place to live. The local chapter can sometimes help with repairs to existing homes as well.
Prospective Habitat homeowners must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing. Once selected, Habitat homeowners must partner with HfH throughout the process, helping to build their own home or the homes of others in homeownership program, taking home ownership classes and/or performing other voluntary work. Homeowners must also be able and willing to pay an affordable mortgage. Mortgage payments are cycled back into the community to help build additional Habitat houses.
