Becoming a Partner Family

Thank you for inquiring about homeownership through Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry, and we welcome applications from anyone in need of decent and affordable housing, regardless of personal religious beliefs. We build homes with families and sell those houses with no-interest mortgages to families who could not otherwise afford them. We are financed primarily through private donations, and we build with volunteer labor.


The Family Selection Committee of the Crawford County Habitat affiliate carries an awesome responsibility, because Habitat is a people-centered ministry, not merely a house-building organization. When selecting families to become partners with us, the committee looks at three requirements: the family’s need for adequate housing, their ability to pay for the home and expenses, and their willingness to partner with Habitat.


In addition, please note that applicants must have been residents of Crawford County for at least one year to be eligible to become a partner family with our affiliate.


The Family Selection Committee complies with federal laws prohibiting discrimination in housing and credit transactions. Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, marital status, familial status, national origin, disability, gender, age, or whether or not an applicant receives public assistance.


Please sign and return the application, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act Notice, and the E-Sign Act Disclosure and Agreement. (You do not need to return the FAQs, of course.)


Please do not hesitate to call the Habitat Office (see letterhead) if you have any questions about the enclosed application.


This year’s application period will be open from January 1st to February 28th. Applications must be postmarked no later than February 28th to be accepted.


Sincerely,

Kathryn Parke, chair 

Family Selection Committee
