Homeownership

 

How Our Programs Work

Our volunteers are the heart of our work; they dedicate hours to our faith-based mission and help get families back into their homes. However, sometimes our volunteers are also our homeowners – all those receiving assistance participate in “sweat” equity to help in the completion of the building of and repairs to their homes.  Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds, repairs and rehabilitates simple, safe and decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families or who are living in inadequate housing and who are unable to secure adequate housing by conventional means. We rely on an extensive range of partners to complete our work. From securing donated materials to recruiting skilled volunteers to fundraising. All of our work is interconnected with a wide network of community partners.

Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. Every family that Habitat serves is unique, with different needs and struggles. There is never a one-size-fits-all housing solution, but there are many ways to get help.

Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County offers an affordable homeownership program that services low-income, hardworking families and individuals. By partnering with volunteers, corporations, donors, youth and congregations we are making the dream of homeownership a reality. We carefully select families and individuals for each house we build or rehabilitate.

Family selection is non-discriminatory, we do not exclude anyone based on race, color, ethnic origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation or family composition.
