Homeownership

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Hamilton County brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

“Owning a home has been more positive than I ever imagined.  I love the freedom to let the kids play outside without having to worry.  I haven’t ever had that before.”

– Kristin, Habitat homeowner


 


Habitat for Humanity of Hamilton County believes that all hard-working individuals and families should have access to the benefits and stability of homeownership. In this belief, we are committed to partnering with families to build simple, decent, and affordable housing.

The low cost of our homes is made possible by the exceptional support of our community. Building costs remain low thanks to impressive donations and generous volunteerism. These factors make it possible to sell our homes at no profit to the affiliate.
