Habitat for Humanity's goal is to provide decent and affordable
housing to those unable to secure it through more traditional means.
Eligibility is based upon need, income and a willingness to partner
with the organization.
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" in the completion of their home and the
homes of others.
