What does Habitat for Humanity do?
Habitat for Humanity builds simple, affordable homes with and for families, couples and individuals in need of housing.
How can I get involved?
Habitat is funded entirely by donations and staffed largely with volunteers. We are always in need of individuals willing to pitch in to help a neighbor in need. Visit our How You Can Help section to find out ways to donate or volunteer.
If I were to donate funds, how is my money used?
Administrative costs are covered by the Habitat Store revenue so that 100% of cash donations can be used to build homes.
All contributions are used where most needed, for construction materials, building permits, subcontractor fees or other construction expenses.
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 a 0% interest mortgage provided by Habitat, or through a USDA Direct Loan at up to 5.5% interest.
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 a low-interest mortgage loan. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing who receives a Habitat home; however, applicants must be residents of Clallam County for at least one year.
Volunteering with Habitat is a fun and rewarding experience! From the construction site, to the Habitat Store, to our committees, every volunteer position offers you an opportunity to take part in changing the lives of local individuals and families. No experience or special skills required - sign up today!
