We can only accept applications for Habitat housing during open applications sessions. Applicants must attend an orientation session before they can receive an application. Applications will not be handed out at the office or available online. Please review the guidelines below to see if you qualify for a Habitat home before attending orientation.

Please sign up for our newsletter to receive notification of the next orientation session dates.

Before you apply, you can prepare by:

  • Meeting with a housing and credit counselor.
  • Attending budgeting classes. These help applicants establish healthy money management skills and improve their monthly spending and saving habits.
  • Attending a First Time Home Buyer Class

Completed applications are reviewed by the Homeowner Selection Committee and approved by our Board of Directors. Members of both are volunteers from throughout the community and all walks of life.

About Us

Here at Houston County Habitat for Humanity, we believe that all our neighbors deserve safe, decent, affordable housing. We also believe that something special happens when the entire community comes together to lend a hand. Bonds are made. Laughter is shared. Confidence is built. Lives are changed. And the places we all call home are better because of it.
