What happens next?

Here's how to become a part of our selection group.

Once you’ve completed an orientation you need to fill out a credit review form within 90 days. Once approved, we will send you an invitation to apply for our next selection period. It’s important to note that you are not alone in the process. Our Family Services Team is here to help. Take the first step today with a free orientation that will provide the information you need and guide you through the process. 

Within 90 days of completing your orientation, we will contact you and provide a credit review form to submit.

After your credit form is reviewed, you are sent an invitation to apply for our next selection period.

Once your application has been approved you are invited to a small group session to discuss homes available for purchase and next steps.

Our Selection Committee will arrange to visit you to determine your willingness to partner with us and your need for improved housing.

The Selection Committee recommends you to the Board of Directors where they decide on final approval.

Please be patient; the selection process can take some time to complete. If the home is new construction, more time may be added to the process. Owning a Habitat home is not a fast or emergency housing solution.

Take the first step!
