APPLY TO PURCHASE A HOME

Habitat for Humanity is always accepting applications for former military members or veterans interested in becoming Habitat homeowners. Please review the information on our homebuyer page here about the program qualifications. A former military member or veteran is defined as a “person who served in the active military, naval or air service, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.”

Families will be selected for the Habitat for Heroes program according to the program qualifications. Habitat for Heroes families receive a 25% discount off the total house cost. The zero-interest Habitat mortgage will breakdown to about $500-$800 monthly and will include real estate taxes and homeowner’s insurance!

If you have any specific questions or would like to submit an application after reviewing the information provided, please send an email to partner@habitatpgw.org or call 757-913-5653.

DONATE NOW

We help as many families as we can, but the lack of decent and affordable housing remains a critical problem in our area. By donating, you will provide upfront funding for building materials and services that makes interest-free loans to Habitat partner families possible. Habitat partner families help to build their own homes - alongside volunteers - and pay an affordable mortgage. Your monetary donations enable us to continue building strength, stability and independence for future local families.
