Does Habitat Give Houses Away?
This is a common misconception. Habitat does not give houses away - we are a hand up, not a hand out - instead, we provide people a no-profit, no-interest mortgage to make home ownership a possibility for those who could not otherwise purchase a home.
I need a place to live right now. Can you help?
Our home ownership program is not a quick fix. The application and building processes are quite lengthy. If you need housing quickly, contact the United Way's 2-1-1 Information Hotline at 2-1-1 on landlines or 330-499-9997 on cellular phones. You can also call the homeless hotline at 330-452-4363
What makes these homes affordable?
Four simple things make Habitat homes affordable for lower-income people:
Volunteer labor keeps costs low
No-profit selling price
Gifts from companies, individuals, local organizations and charities
Are Alliance Area Habitat homes government subsidized?
The Alliance Area Habitat for Humanity does not receive any government subsidies for providing housing for lower-income people. We are funded through gifts, grants, mortgage payments from Habitat homeowners, and the generosity of the Alliance area community.
