Who do we serve?
Habitat partners with people who meet three basic criteria:
1. Need: Applicants will be eligible for our program if they currently live or work in Monmouth, Ocean or Mercer County, and are living under conditions that are not adequate based on size, structural condition, or safety concerns.
2. Ability to Pay: Applicants must have a steady income to pay a low interest mortgage. We serve people whose income is between 35% to 70% of Monmouth County’s area median income. Income limits are available by clicking here.
3. Willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County: When selected, you become a “partner family” in the Habitat movement. Your participation in the construction of your home and the homes of others is called “sweat equity”. Families are required to complete 250-400 hours of “sweat equity”, depending on family size, prior to closing on their homes.
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 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.
