Partnership Requirements

You must be willing to partner with our Home Repair and Construction staff. Habitat’s “sweat equity” requirements asks the homeowner to contribute toward to the competition of Habitat’s work on his or her home. Sweat equity may include time spent helping with the construction of your home (if physically able) or simply being a cooperative and gracious partner who is a welcoming host to the Habitat volunteers and staff.
