We believe that everyone deserves a decent place to live, and that homeownership makes a difference—in communities, and families alike. Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County provides a hand-up not a hand-out to qualifying families who may not be able to qualify for traditional mortgage options. Our homeownership program is designed to prepare, educate, and assist individuals in their journey to becoming Habitat homeowners.
While all of our homeowners have different life circumstances, Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County looks at three important qualifications:
Need for housing
Willingness to partner
Ability to pay
Individuals who are interested in becoming a Habitat homeowner must meet ‘HUD’ Household Income Guidelines listed above.
