Muskegon County Habitat for Humanity is a faith based organization that was founded on the premise that everyone deserves a safe, decent and affordable place to live.
Based on that belief, MCHFH works with local churches, businesses, organizations, individuals and partnering low-income families to build and renovate area homes. Since 1985 this effort has totaled 99 homes for struggling families in Muskegon County, and in 2013 we built Muskegon County's 100th Habitat house!
Habitat families work along side volunteers on build sites and within the organization for, at least, 275 hours, earning sweat equity which is used toward the down payment on their new home. They then purchase completed homes with a 25-year 0% interest mortgage.
APPLY for a habitat home
An application process is under way to identify families who will receive homes in 2014 and 2015. If your family is in need of affordable housing and ready for homeownership, but is ineligible for a traditional loan because of a low but stable income, the Habitat program might be for you.
Simply complete the Homebuyer Information Brochure to see if you qualify to apply. If so return the form to the Habitat office to receive further application information. Pre-Qualification forms are also available at the office and both ReStores or by calling (231) 727-6020.
