Homeownership

Build your home. Build your future. Build community.

Why Homeownership?

Families seeking a path to a brighter future partner with Habitat to build or improve a decent and affordable home. Owning a Habitat home goes beyond just having a place to live – it's about gaining stability, security, and the chance to build a lasting legacy for generations to come.

Program Guidelines

We provide affordable homeownership opportunities to qualifying households, earning between 35-80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) for Sedgwick County.

To qualify, you must show a need for housing, be willing to partner with Habitat by contributing sweat equity in the construction of your home, and demonstrate the ability to pay.

They say a home is where the heart is, but for me, it's the foundation for my dreams. I am incredibly grateful to Habitat for Humanity that I now have a stable home, providing me a peace of mind, but also the freedom to dream big.
