Families and individuals chosen for Habitat for Humanity homes do not receive a
handout. Habitat for Humanity homes are financed with affordable no-interest
loans. Mortgage payments are made locally to Habitat for Humanity who in turn
uses the funds to build or rehabilitate other homes. In addition to a monetary
down payment, families must provide 350 hours and individuals 250 hours of
“sweat equity” into the completion of their home and the homes of others.
For more information on Habitat for Humanity of Logan County, call 217-732-6412

Habitat for Humanity is not only building homes and lives, but a sense of
community, one house at a time.
