Homeownership

Houston County Habitat for Humanity builds homes in partnership with low income working families and the community to build decent, affordable housing.

The three principle criteria for our home ownership program are:

  • Need for adequate housing
  • Ability to pay the Habitat mortgage
  • Willingness to partner with Habitat

Houston County Habitat for Humanity is "not a hand-out but a hand-UP!" You will be required to complete "Sweat Equity" hours; complete educational classes on budgeting, legal affairs, and home maintenance; work with a housing counselor to improve your credit; and successfully pay debts, including closing costs.

Upcoming Application Period

We can only accept applications for Habitat housing during open application sessions. The next application session will not be until 2019. Once the open session is announced, blank applications will be available for download from this site or at our office, 955 Watson Blvd.

Please sign up for our newsletter to receive notification of the next open session dates.
