HOME OWNERSHIP

Habitat Homeownership

Twenty-seven qualified Cleveland County families have realized the dream of owning their own homes through Habitat for Humanity. It is important for potential applicants to realize that Habitat for Humanity homes are not a hand-out. The owners of Habitat homes are expected to contribute at least 300 hours of sweat equity, make a down payment on their house, and make a monthly zero percent mortgage payment to Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity.

The Family Selection Process

The family selection process at Cleveland County Habitat is impartial. We sell homes to qualified families of all ages, faiths, races, walks of life, and cultures. We are looking for poorly-housed people with no way to buy a home on their own. We are looking for people who will be responsible for house payments and home maintenance, and who are willing to partner with Cleveland County Habitat to build their homes and the homes of other approved families. We want people who want to be a part of the Habitat for Humanity community.
