Become a Habitat Home Owner

 

 

 

 

Have you ever thought about owning you own home? Habitat may be the answer to making that dream come true. 

 

Habitat for humanity builds quality, highly energy efficient homes in Partnership with our selected family. It is not a quick fix to finding you a place to live. However, it is a permanent solution to your need for safe, affordable housing.

Give a hand up to your Community

The Habitat for Humanity Program is not a hand out.                 It is a hand up that benefits the community as a whole.

Please consider using the link below to make an investment in your community. Gifts to Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity stay in our county and go towards our home repair and new home construction cost. When we help a family secure safe, affordable housing we all benefit. Converting vacant or dilapidated lots into safe, energy efficient homes increases tax revenue for community's allowing them to provide more and better services to all of us. And for the families, we are not just building a home. We are helping families build security and self reliance through shelter.

WE BUILD MORE THAN HOMES, WE BUILD COMMUNITY!  COME JOIN US!


Who Are We?
Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to building safe, and affordable housing for economically disadvantaged families in Montcalm County.

Since 1991 we have partnered with a broad coalition of individuals, churches and businesses to build 27 homes and complete countless "critical repair" projects in Montcalm County.
 
The Need in Our Community
For many hard-working families in Montcalm County, the dream of home ownership seems unattainable. Roughly 18% of people in our county live below the poverty level. This is more than 13% higher than the state average. Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity empowers families by making the dream of home ownership a reality. This is how we serve God, build hope and break the cycle of poverty in our community.

Who We Serve
Our Partner Families are first-time home buyers, seniors, handicapped residents and veterans, who earn between 30-60% of the HUD area median income (AMI) and who are currently living in unsafe, dilapidated, or unaffordable housing. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to pay an affordable mortgage, and their willingness to partner with Habitat to work on their own home and those of others. We seek to empower families by providing economic opportunity, home owner education, log-term partnership, hands-on learning and the dignity of a hand-up, not a hand-out.
