Applications accepted March 18-29 2019

The Houston County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for home ownership beginning March 18 through March 29. Habitat for Humanity builds quality, energy-efficient homes which are sold through no-interest loans to home buyers who meet stringent program requirements.

To be sure everyone fully understands the requirements of the program and has the best chance of submitting a successful application, we require attendance at an orientation session to even receive an application. The orientation session gives applicants a familiarization with the Habitat mission, requirements for qualification and help in gathering information for their application.

The orientation sessions are scheduled at the Habitat office, 955 Watson Boulevard, Warner Robins at 5:30 pm on March 5, 12 and 14 and at 2:00 pm March 16. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 478-328-3388 or by emailing programservices@hocohabitat.org.


Before you apply, you can prepare by:

  • Meeting with a housing and credit counselor.
  • Attending budgeting classes. These help applicants establish healthy money management skills and improve their monthly spending and saving habits.
  • Attending a First Time Home Buyer Class

Completed applications are reviewed by the Homeowner Selection Committee and approved by our Board of Directors. Members of both are volunteers from throughout the community and all walks of life.
