Our Families

How Are Families Selected?

Greene County Habitat selects families to purchase the homes that are built, based on several strict criteria. We choose families who are living in inadequate or substandard conditions and who cannot obtain a conventional loan or otherwise move up from public housing. They must demonstrate the ability to pay a 25-year no-interest mortgage and be willing to partner with Habitat by working at least 250 sweat equity hours of construction on a home (theirs or another Habitat home).

Application workshops are held once each year. Applicants are invited to attend and complete an application for home ownership.
