Habitat for Humanity Fresno County does not build houses FOR families; we facilitate a partnership among families who:
1. Demonstrate need
2. Have the ability to pay the mortgage and
3. Are willing to partner in the construction of their home.
This partnership also engages community supporters who join the families in the home building process and provide both financial and in-kind support for building supplies and materials. Homeowners invest their own labor, or “sweat equity,” into building their Habitat house and they pay back a no-profit, low-interest mortgage.
Applicants must have meet certain HUD household income requirements, have a minimum credit score, and must donate 500 hours of sweat equity just to name a few of the qualifications.
