Fair Housing LOGOHow is a Family Selected?

Families who are currently living in substandard housing and cannot obtain a mortgage through standard means may qualify. Selection is based upon need, ability to make monthly payments and willingness to partner with Habitat to complete 500 hours of sweat equity.

If your family, or a family you know, is in need of decent, affordable housing, contact Habitat at 518-793-7484. A Family Selection volunteer can give you information on the availability, size, costs and sweat-equity requirements for a Habitat home, as well as information on the application process.
