Willingness to Partner

A partner family must be willing to complete "sweat-equity" hours.

"Sweat-equity" is when a partner family takes part in building their own home and other Habitat homes and may include activities such as clearing the lot, painting, helping with construction, working in the Habitat office, or other approved activities.

  • A two-adult household is required to perform a minimum of 500 hours.
  • A single-adult family is required to complete 500 hours.
  • A portion of the sweat equity hours can be completed by family and friends.
  • All of the hours must be completed before the partner family can purchase the home.

​In addition, the partner family must also be willing to attend home buyer education classes.
