Habitat seeks to end poverty housing by transforming whole communities, house by house, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood. Our new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative allows us to serve more families by expanding our offerings to include critical home repairs and rehabilitation programs.
Our homebuyer partners must go through a rigorous qualification and selection process. Our homebuyer partners must have earnings and attend financial literacy training that teaches them to maintain a budget. They must invest 400 or 500 hours (or about a year) of sweat equity in the building of their own home as well as the homes of others. During sweat equity they learn home maintenance and upkeep.
And guess what? After all that:
They still have to pay a monthly mortgage.
