Send a link to a friend
Do you think the idea of
homeownership is just a dream for you or your family? If so, you should
attend a Sunday afternoon orientation sponsored by Habitat for Humanity of
Logan County to learn how you may qualify to participate in a program
leading to homeownership. Eligibility is based upon one year of residency
within the county, need, income and a willingness to partner with the
Habitat for Humanity's goal is to
provide decent and affordable housing to those unable to secure it
through more traditional means. Nearly one-quarter of the world's
population, including 10 million Americans, lack adequate housing.
Families and individuals chosen for
Habitat for Humanity homes do not receive a handout, but a hand up.
Habitat homes are financed with affordable no-interest loans.
Mortgage payments are made locally to Habitat for Humanity of Logan
County, which in turn uses these funds to build or rehabilitate
other houses within the county.
Families must have the financial
ability to make monthly mortgage payments. In addition to a monetary
down payment, families must provide 350 hours and individuals must
provide 250 hours of "sweat equity" into the completion of their
home and the homes of others.
Interested families and individuals
should attend the Habitat for Humanity orientation on Sunday from
1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Logan County Housing Authority, 1028 N.
