Habitat East Bay/Silicon Valley’s model is unique, engaging the whole community in the construction of every Habitat home. Habitat partner families get a hand up, not a hand out, as well as the safety and security of owning a home. Habitat homes are affordable due to no money down, no-profit mortgages, volunteer labor and community support. Partner families invest 250-500 hours of "sweat equity" in the construction of their home, and are responsible for monthly mortgage payments and upkeep of their home.
Selected partner families learn how to build their homes on the construction site and are ultimately better prepared to take on the many maintenance responsibilities as homeowners. In addition, each partner family must complete a comprehensive training curriculum designed to educate and prepare them for successful homeownership. Along with building your own home comes the pride of ownership and a significant impact on the future success for Habitat children.
