Who is served

We serve families of all ethnicities and faiths. Habitat does not discriminate, and families do not need to have Christian beliefs to participate in our homeownership program.

Among other factors, families are selected based on income, need, and creditworthiness. At this time, we do not use a credit score for qualification, but families do need to show responsibility in the handling of their debt.
