The Habitat for Humanity homeownership program does more than put a roof over someone’s head. In affordable, healthy, decent, stable homes:
- Families can provide stability for their children.
- A family’s sense of dignity and pride grows.
- Health, physical safety, and security improve.
- Educational and job prospects increase.
Applicants should check online at www.morrishabitat.org/homeownership/apply-for-home-ownership for details on qualifications. Applicants should have a household income of at least $47,000 and there are maximum income limits based on household size. Additionally, applicants should have good credit scores and a clean credit history.
