The mission of Montcalm County Habitat for Humanity is to improve lives in our community by building safe and affordable housing in partnership with God’s people.
Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials and the precedes from our ReStore, we build simple, decent and affordable houses with the help of the future homeowners - our partner family. These houses are sold to partner families at an affordable cost and financed with an affordable mortgage.
Homes are built by forming a partnership with the future homeowner family who must meet a threefold criteria:
The combination of cost reducing volunteer labor and a zero or low interest mortgage is what makes the home affordable to low-income families. The mortgage payments are recycled through a building fund to build more homes for more families in need.
