Become a Homeowner Partner

The Altavista Area/Campbell County Habitat for Humanity partners with selected homeowners to provide safe homes with affordable mortgages. This partnership offers a hand up; not a hand out.

 Applicants must meet the following criteria to be considered for homeownership.

Homeowners are selected from those applicants that meet these criteria. 

The number of homes available each year is limited, so

not everyone that meets these criteria will become partnering homeowners.

Criteria To Qualify For Consideration For Homeownership

  1. Applicants must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing.


  2. Applicants must be willing to partner with us to build their home and other homes. This partnership includes performing 300 hours of sweat equity. Sweat equity is work such as building homes, fundraising, or other assigned activities.  

3. Applicants must show ability and willingness to pay the mortgage payments. This means your household income must be between the minimum and maximum shown below for your household size.
