HCHFH offers a unique program that works in partnership with low-income individuals and families in Huntington County who wish to improve their lives through successful homeownership. Housing discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability is illegal by federal law.
Habitat houses are affordable for low-income households — no profit is added to the sale price, and mortgages are written with 0% or equivalent interest. Mortgage payments received are then used to build more Habitat homes.
Partner Homeowners invest 250 hours of "sweat equity" before signing a mortgage and moving in.
