**The Home Preservation Partnership serves households at or below 80% of the area median income.


Like our core building program, the Home Preservation Partnership adheres to the Habitat model of providing a hand up, not a handout.


Partners are required to pay a portion of their project's cost, or co-payment, which is determined according to a sliding fee scale based on income.

Sweat Equity

Partners must also participate in the completion of their project and/or other Habitat projects. The amount of "sweat equity" required is based on the cost of the project. Tasks are assigned according to ability and disabilities are accommodated. All able-bodied members of the household are required to contribute "sweat equity".


Applications for our first round of houses will be accepted through March 31st, 2018.
