Did you know?
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) runs many programs to help Sussex County households access safe, healthy and affordable housing. These programs include affordable homeownership, home repairs, energy efficient upgrades, financial literacy, advocacy, neighborhood revitalization and more.
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, each home is purchased 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, willingness to become partners in the program and 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.
