Everyone deserves a place to call home.
Our future homeowners share one common goal: stability through homeownership.
They’re willing to work hard for it, often juggling family life, full-time jobs, schooling and more in addition to meeting Habitat Orlando & Osceola’s homeownership requirements.
Ownership extends to the process as well as the house with Habitat. We want to ensure our homeowners are deeply invested in their homes, so we ask that they partner with us. They do this in part by attending homeownership classes and volunteering through sweat equity.
A safe, affordable, comfortable home awaits them at the end of this journey. Besides shelter, our homes often bring the stability needed for our homeowners and their families to invest in their education, health, and more.
