Habitat Home Applicants
Habitat Orlando builds affordable homes for low-income families who currently live in substandard housing. Habitat for Humanity believes homeownership is a vital step in creating self-esteem in both families and neighborhoods, and is the most basic way to break successive generations of poverty.
Habitat for Humanity is an equal opportunity program. Families are selected based on their need for housing, willingness to partner with us, and their ability to pay the mortgage. Individuals from all races, sexes, and creeds are encouraged to apply.
If you'd like more information please call 407-648-4567 ext 201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Presently reside in housing that is substandard in some way or inadequate due to any of the following – housing not maintained by the landlord, cost of housing, overcrowded housing, temporary housing, etc. Living in subsidized housing does not preclude a family from consideration.
- Be willing to contribute hundreds of hours of ‘sweat equity’ on the construction sites and complete the homeowner course to prepare for becoming a homeowner.
- The total household income must fall within a predetermined range according to the number of persons in the family. This is to ensure that the new homeowners will be able to pay the low monthly mortgage payments, taxes and insurance.
We serve the Greater Orlando area, primarily within the City of Orlando and parts of Orange County (with the exception of Winter Park, Maitland, Apopka, Winter Garden, and Oakland which are covered by other Habitat affiliates).
