Willingness to Partner

A partner family must be willing to complete “sweat-equity” hours.

“Sweat-equity” is when a partner family takes part in building their own home and other Habitat homes and may include activities such as clearing the lot, painting, helping with construction, or other approved activities.

  • A two-adult household is required to perform a minimum of 500 hours.
  • A single-adult family is required to complete 250 hours.
  • A portion of the sweat equity hours can be completed by family and friends.
  • All of the hours must be completed before the partner family can purchase the home.

In addition, the partner family must also be willing to attend home buyer education classes.
