Volunteer FAQs

Question: Does Habitat for Humanity only gives houses to poor people?

Answer: Habitat for Humanity builds houses to help those in need and then sells the houses to the homeowner partners. Because of Habitat’s no-profit, no-interest loans, and because houses are built principally by volunteers, mortgage payments are affordable for those unable to obtain conventional financing for a home. Habitat homeowners typically earn incomes that are 30-50 percent of the median income in the area. They are required to invest an average 300-500 hours of “sweat equity” – which is time spent building their own home or other Habitat homes.

Question: Does Habitat for Humanity  builds houses only for minorities?

Answer: Habitat builds houses to help people in need irregardless to race. Three criteria drive the family selection process: need, ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest mortgage over a 15-30 year period and a willingness to partner with Habitat. The U.S. Fair Housing Act of 1968 prohibits denying anyone housing on the basis of race, sex, creed, marital status, color or national origin. The covenant that all local affiliates sign with Habitat for Humanity International also specifies that HFH homeowner families are selected “according to criteria that do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed or ethnic background.”
