Habitat Families

Muskegon County Habitat for Humanity was organized in 1985 and has since provided homeownership opportunities for over 100 families, including 83 single parents and over 300 children. As our families advance through the program—progressing from application to orientation to sweat equity and education to moving into their new home—they gain the knowledge and skills to be empowered homeowners. 

The journey is not easy by any means. Habitat families work extremely hard as they fulfill program requirements.  They greatly benefit from their efforts, however, reporting many positive changes in their lives in addition to owning their own home.

Statistics from a 2008 Davenport University Study of 84 Michigan Habitats

Homeowners are encouraged to stay involved with the mission by networking with other Habitat families and helping us continue our mission to bring affordable homeownership to others.  Call the office at 231-727-6020 to find out more about the MCHFH Homeowners Group.
