The Habitat Model
Habitat's programs are a hand up, not a hand out for qualified low-income applicants. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, our New Construction program builds simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partners.
In addition, in 2015 we added a new program to our scope of work to allow us to have a greater impact in our community and to serve more homeowners. Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) is a home preservation, repair, and weatherization program designed to help low-income homeowners maintain the integrity of their homes while contributing to building a stronger and healthier community.
Both New Construction and Neighborhood Revitalization share 3 basic eligibility requirements: 1.NEED- Your current living situation must be inadequate in some way. 2.ABILITY- You must meet Minimum Income Requirements. 3. WILLINGNESS TO PARTNER- You must be willing to put in "Sweat Equity" time.
