WOULD YOU LIKE TO 
OWN YOUR OWN HOME?

Lewis & Clark Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that works with low-income families to build and renovate houses. Families are selected according to the following criteria:
 
1. NEED
You must currently be living in substandard housing. This might include: poor plumbing, heating, or wiring, a leaking roof, overcrowded conditions, or unsafe or unsanitary living conditions.
 
2. ABILITY TO PAY
You must be able to repay the mortgage. This mortgage is a no-interest loan, typically for the length of 25 years. You must not be able to qualify for conventional financing. Your income should be within the guidelines for the county in which you live:
Madison County

Bond County
 
3. WILLINGNESS TO PARTNER
You must be willing to partner with Habitat's program. This includes completing 400 hours of sweat equity, making monthly house payments, maintaining your home, and participating in the Family Support Program. You must also be willing to allow two members of the Family Selection Committee to conduct a home visit.
 
IF YOU MEET THE ABOVE CRITERIA AND WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE APPLICATION PROCESS, PLEASE CALL 618.343-0301.  
 
We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
