WHAT WE DO
Each Habitat house built in Benton County
is paid for in three ways:
1. Through hundreds of hours of sweat equity by the selected partner families
2. Through monthly mortgage payments
3. By gift-in-kind donations and monetary donations from within the community
The homes we build are modest in size, usually measuring about 1100-1400 sq. ft. The monthly, no-interest mortgage payment is approximately $250-$375 for an average of 20 years. Every house payment reverts back to a ‘Fund for Humanity’ that is used to begin new projects for additional families around the county.
Family Selection Committee:
New homeowners are considered on the basis of need, ability to repay and a willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity to help future homeowners. Our Family Selection Committee processes each application carefully and fairly. Habitat for Humanity of Benton County, Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age or marital status. Families of all types play an important role in our organization. Some families currently partnering with our Habitat include two-parent families with children, single-father/single-mother families, disabled homeowners and grandparents who are raising their grandchildren or great-grandchildren. They come from many different ethnic and religious backgrounds as well.
Habitat for Humanity of Benton County, Inc. welcomes you to join its volunteer and donor base to work to eliminate poverty housing within Benton County.
