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.
Need for housing
Willingness to partner
Ability to pay
While all of our homeowners have different life circumstances, they all have these three important qualifications. The best way to find out if you qualify to for Habitat’s homeownership program is to attend an orientation.
Individuals who are interested in becoming a Habitat homeowner must meet HUD’s income guidelines listed below.
