In order to become a Habitat homebuyer, each applicant must apply for eligibility. Applicants must demonstrate a need for housing, must qualify to financially afford a mortgage, and be willing to complete 250+ hours of “sweat equity,” working alongside Habitat volunteers to build/rehab their home. Habitat homebuyers must also be committed to attend homeownership, home maintenance, and personal finance training classes . In exchange, they are provided with the opportunity to buy safe, stable and reliable shelter through an affordable mortgage payment.

Habitat for Humanity doesn’t give away free homes—we provide the opportunity for low income individuals and families to build a better future. “We build shelter in order to empower individuals and families to lead happy and secure lives,” said Ed Lee, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati CEO. “We are all human beings, and each one of us deserves a decent place to call home.” Children of homeowners are 116 percent more likely to graduate from college compared to children in families who do not own their homes. 90 percent of surveyed Habitat homebuyers in 44 U.S. cities said they could not have owned a home without help from Habitat. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati has been giving the gift of hope for 30 years in the areas of Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn and Ohio counties in Indiana.
