Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply for a "free" Home?
Our homes are not free. Habitat for Humanity uses funds from a variety of sources including sponsors from the community to build affordable homes. We go through a selection process with numerous families or individuals who may qualify for a home built by Habitat for Humanity. We then select the family or individual who best meets the Habitat for Humanity qualifications for home ownership.
