Since 1985, Morris Habitat for Humanity has built, rehabilitated or preserved 335 homes, making a difference in the lives of every Habitat Homeowner. Since inception in 1985, there have been zero foreclosures!
The Habitat for Humanity homeownership program does more than put a roof over someone’s head. In affordable, healthy, decent, stable homes families can provide stability for their children, family’s sense of dignity and pride grows, health, physical safety, and security improves and educational and job prospects increase.
Applicants should check online at www.morrishabitat.org/homeownership/apply-for-home-ownership for details on qualifications. Applicants should have a household income of at least $47,000 and there are maximum income limits based on household size. Additionally, applicants should have good credit scores and a clean credit history.
Most important to Morris Habitat is the willingness of the applicant to fulfill the Habitat path to homeownership requirements. These requirements include attendance and participation in home buyer education workshops and the willingness to contribute “sweat equity” in the amount of at least 300 hours helping to build their home. All the details will be discussed at the mandatory orientation meetings which will be held at the Morris Habitat for Humanity in Randolph.
