Habitat homes are for first-time home buyers who meet strict qualifications for loan approval including having a strong work history and good credit standing. They qualify for mortgages that are interest free, low principal loans that they can afford to pay.
This program serves U.S. Armed Forces Veterans who are homeowners and in need of critical home repairs. Critical home repairs include 4 main areas: 1. Safe: steps, windows, doors, locks, lighting, electric, etc. 2. Warm: furnace, weatherization, hot water heater, etc. 3. Dry: roofing, siding, plumbing, etc. 4. Accessible: ramps, ADA modifications, accessible kitchens/baths, etc.
This program serves homeowners in Cobb, Douglas or Paulding counties who have a verifiable need that falls within our scope of work and capabilities. We are actively seeking qualified Seniors, Disabled Adults, and Veterans.
COVID-19 crisis threatens to undo our homeowners’ hard-won stability. They are often in jobs most affected by the pandemic. They are cooks, cashiers, restaurant servers and maintenance workers. Many work for small businesses. Or they work in health care and may have become sick or required to quarantine. No matter the industry they work in, many Habitat homeowners have experienced a job loss or furlough or have seen their wages cut and are struggling to pay their mortgages. Please help us support Habitat families dealing with the unexpected and devastating financial effects of the COVID-19 crisis. Since March, the number of our homeowners requesting mortgage assistance has increased nearly 200 percent. We know this will only increase in the months ahead.
