INTRODUCTION TO CENTRAL BERKSHIRE HABITAT
Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization that builds homes, communities and hope.
Berkshire Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
All that said, please understand that we do not give away homes. Our homebuyer partners must:
Go through a rigorous qualification and selection process.
Have a qualifying income and attend our Building for Tomorrow financial literacy training program.
Invest 400 (for a single person) or 500 (for dual heads of households) hours of sweat equity in the building of their own home as well as the homes of others. During sweat equity, homebuyer partners learn home maintenance and upkeep.
Pay their mortgage on time.
