Mission Statement


Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County is a nonprofit, Christian housing ministry seeking to eliminate poverty housing and make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Since 1992, we have built more than 45 simple, decent houses in parternship with low-income families in need. We welcome people from all walks of life to join in our effort to change lives, and provide a path to a brighter future filled with hope and prosperity.

Description


Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County does not give houses away. We offer helping hand to deserving, low-income families through our homeownership program. We provide zero-interest mortgages, homeownership training, and support to ensure Habitat homeowners succeed in homeownership. Future homeowners must put in at least 400 hours of "sweat equity" labor by helping to build their own home and working on other Habitat projects. A $1,200 down payment is required, which can be paid in installments before construction begins. After construction is completed, houses are sold to partnering homeowners, with zero-interest mortgages spread out over 20 - 30 years in order for the payments, including taxes and insurance, to remain affordable. Their monthly payments are used to build additional Habitat houses in Anderson County.
