How It Works!

Each future Habitat homeowner applicant must show a need, be willing to volunteer, work “sweat equity hours” working on their home and others’ homes, attend homeownership classes, and have the potential for improving their income and credit score to pay a monthly mortgage. Habitat works with applicants to achieve these benchmarks. Each approved future homeowner must complete 200-400 volunteer hours. Frequently, future homeowners have disabilities or chronic health challenges, so tasks are tailored to each person’s capability. Prior to closing on their homes, everyone must complete 34 hours of homebuyer education classes on topics such as:
Financial Literacy • Employability for Adults and Youth • Foreclosure Prevention • Home Maintenance • Estate Planning• Home Do-It-Yourself• Edible Gardening


In addition, one-on-one mentors and staff assistance guide future homeowners along the way.

Habitat sells each home for, on average, for $145,000 to the new homeowner with a 30-year, 0% interest mortgage. Mortgage payments are never more than 30% of a household’s monthly income. Habitat uses the monthly mortgage payments toward the construction of additional homes. Many partners contribute the critical funding that makes this program work in the form of volunteerism, grants, special events, cash and in-kind donations. 

How You Can Help!

  1. Sign up for the build day at www.cfri.net. There is a maximum of 25 volunteers for the CFRI build on Nov. 1st.
  2. Donate for the cause at https://habitatorlando.rallybound.org/cfri/
  • Only 30% of what is needed to build a new home is provided by generous donations of products and services. Habitat still pays for most of the subcontracting services and products needed to build a home.
  • Habitat pays for the land and necessary infrastructure to build the homes.
  • Their expert staff is trained and certified in a variety of programs from construction to community development. This also requires ongoing training and certifications.
  • Their comprehensive staff works diligently to ensure all members of the community served are approved and have the necessary resources. Their tasks range from reviewing applications, arranging education sessions, to bringing community members together in leadership roles to ensure the long-term goals of community engagement and development.
