Habitat for Humanity Addison County Chapter constructs simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with families who currently live in unfit, indecent conditions and have no possibility of obtaining a home through any conventional means. We then sell these houses to the partner families for cost, with no profit and no interest. We keep costs low by using volunteer labor, providing a means for people who have resources of time, money, or materials to channel them to the poor.
Are you tired of paying rent? Looking to own your own sustainable home?
We are continually searching for partners to live in homes we build in Addison County. We encourage you to take the next step and contact us at HabitatApplicationsAC@gmail.com for further information, or call us at 388-0400. All of our homeowners say they never thought they would qualify nor that they would be selected, but they were. Click here for eligibility criteria and application form.
We are always looking for volunteers! Whether you have experience with building or not, we can find ways for you to contribute to the cause.
Each home costs about $125,000 cash in addition to the volunteer labor and donations in kind. That includes a 10% donation to the International Habitat for Humanity Organization, which is helping provide housing all over the world from right here in Addison County to Cambodia. All donations are tax-deductible.
We also recognize that there is a tremendous need throughout Addison County to help people who own their homes but do not have the resources to complete essential minor repairs like peeling paint, rotting steps, and broken railings. With this in mind, we began our A Brush With Kindness/Home Repair Program in 2013. Click here to apply for home repair.
