Haywood Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to provide decent shelter for God’s people in need.  Many people dream of home ownership and the positive impact of owning your own home is tremendous.  Our program is not a giveaway program.  Each house we build is SOLD to our partners with a no interest mortgage.  This gives people an opportunity to be homeowners usually for the first time.  Each family is required to pay 400 hours of “sweat equity” into the construction of their home.  We sell the house at our cost so that normal monthly payments are kept affordable.


Habitat Guidelines


Haywood Habitat for Humanity’s Board of Directors, based upon the recommendation of the Family Selection Committee, chooses our Partner Families.  The decision is based on the following criteria:

-Residency: All applicants must be residents of North Carolina for a minimum of 12 months and currently living in Haywood County at application date.

-Need:  Applicants must not be able to qualify for a conventional bank loan and their current housing must be inadequate (unsafe, overcrowded, unsanitary, unaffordable, unsafe neighborhood, or inaccessible).  As part of the application process, the Family Selection Committee will do a home visit.

-Ability to pay:  Applicants must have a steady source of legal income, and earn no more than 60% of the county’s median income.  The monthly mortgage payment cannot exceed 25% of the family’s gross income, so as to not overburden the family with a housing cost that exceeds their budget.

-Willingness to Partner:  Applicants approved for homes must invest 400 hours of “sweat equity” in the construction of their new home.  Applicants must also attend Habitat homeownership education classes and participate in Haywood Habitat events as requested.
