Houses are sold at no profit through no-interest mortgages to qualified homebuyers who earn 25% to 50% of the area median income.
There are three main criteria for involvement in the homeownership program: need, income eligibility, and willingness to partner.
We strive both to change the systems that lead to poverty housing and build communities where everyone can afford to live. The sad fact is that the need for decent, affordable housing is far greater than any single organization can meet. That is why Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake works with partners throughout the community including businesses, non-profits, government entities, and the faith community.
We enthusiastically share Habitat for Humanity International’s ultimate goal of putting shelter on the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that poverty housing and homelessness become socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable in our region, nation, and world.
