Thank you for your interest in becoming a Homes for Hope applicant. We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home.
It is our joy to partner with individuals and families from application through construction to ensure the best possible experience for all our program participants. This partnership also allows each participant to prepare for the various responsibilities of homeownership, including gaining a better understanding of money management, mortgages, maintenance and upkeep of homes, and much more.
Habitat’s path to homeownership is an important and in-depth process, requiring hard work, time and dedication that helps to ensure the long-term success of Habitat homeowners.
Habitat homeowners must be active participants in building a better home and future for themselves and their families. Every Habitat home is an investment. For us, it is one answer to a critical need, and we believe that stronger homes will create stronger communities.
Prospective Habitat homeowners must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing. Need will vary from community to community.
Once selected, Habitat homeowners must partner with us throughout the process. This partnership includes performing “sweat equity,” or helping to build their own home or the homes of others in our homeownership program.
Homeowners must also be able and willing to pay an affordable mortgage. Mortgage payments are cycled back into the community to help build additional Habitat houses.
In addition to building new homes, Habitat for Humanity of Clearfield County also assists with critical home repairs. Please click below for more information on how Habitat can help with these needs.
