Every person should have the shelter they need to thrive. The families who partner with Habitat for Humanity to build and improve places to call home come from a variety of backgrounds and are selected at a local level.
If you are looking for help outside of Roscommon County, MI you can find your local Habitat for Humanity here.
Families may find themselves in need of decent shelter due to a variety of circumstances — unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded living conditions, damaged or dilapidated structures, unsafe neighborhoods, or lack of access to land and affordable financing. When families partner with Habitat, they start down a new path — one with far fewer barriers to a better, healthier, more financially stable life.
The basis for a family’s selection for homeownership is their level of need for better housing, their willingness to partner with us and work alongside volunteers, and their ability to pay an affordable mortgage. Read more on the qualifications and how to apply for homeownership.
There is also a need in our community for those who are already homeowners, that have an urgent home repair issue but are unable to afford the cost to make the repairs. Read more on qualifications and how to apply for home repairs.
