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.

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 recommend attendance at an orientation session. 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.

Upcoming Application Period

We can only accept applications for Habitat housing during open applications sessions. The next application session is tentatively scheduled for March 2019. Applicants must attend an orientation session before they can receive an application. Applications will not be handed out at the office or available online. Please review the guidelines below to see if you qualify for a Habitat home before attending orientation.

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