Did you know?
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) builds decent and affordable homes with and for families, couples and individuals in need of housing. SCHFH also offers neighborhood revitalization, home repairs, energy efficient upgrades, and advocates to increase access to safe, decent, and affordable housing.
All contributions are used where most needed, for example construction materials, building permits, subcontractor fees or other construction expenses.
No. In addition to the hundreds of hours of sweat equity that homeowners put into the building of their homes, they purchase their homes with an affordable mortgage.
Families, couples or individuals in need of decent housing should apply to our affordable homeownership program. The Family Empowerment Committee assesses each applicant's level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay an affordable mortgage. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing who receives a Habitat home; however, applicants must be residents of or work in Sussex County for at least one year.
Yes, you certainly may volunteer with SCHFH. You must be 18 or older to volunteer on a construction site, but please contact Michele, our Volunteer Services Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss alternate volunteer opportunities.
