  • Are Habitat houses free?
    Are Habitat houses free?

    No. In addition to the hundreds of hours of sweat equity that homeowners put into the building of their homes, they purchase their homes through an affordable mortgage provided by Habitat. The homeowners' payments become a part of our "Fund for Humanity" and help make it possible for future homeowners to know the dream of homeownership.

  • How are homeowners selected?
    How are homeowners selected?

    Families, couples or individuals in need of decent shelter apply to local Habitat affiliates. The Homeowner Selection Committee assesses each applicant’s level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay an affordable mortgage loan. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing who receives a Habitat home; however, applicants must have lived or worked in Warren County for at least one year.

  • Yes. Habitat needs volunteers to work on many tasks, including working on special events, mentoring families, fundraising, preparing mailings, and providing coffees and lunches at the construction site. Call our office for more information.
