Who's eligible for our program?
Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County provides a unique opportunity for hardworking families to help build and buy their own homes. We work closely with qualified individuals and families to build safe, decent, and affordable homes in Whatcom County.
Owning a Habitat home is often more cost-effective than renting a house or even an apartment. Habitat homeowners build strength, stability, and independence for a better future for themselves and their families.
Habitat is also a permanent, not an immediate, housing solution. If you qualify for our home-ownership program, it frequently takes more than a year from the time you qualify to the time your house is completed.
