Lamoille County Habitat for Humanity
Recipient Period: June 1 – July 31, 2022
Lamoille County Habitat for Humanity is an all volunteer organization with a working board dedicated to providing affordable housing to those who qualify to pay back a mortgage to the local chapter/affiliate. We are the only organization in Lamoille County that provides affordable home ownership and the qualified owner must put in a specific amount of sweat equity. We must fundraise at least 80-90% of the money needed to build a house. Not only do we have to purchase all of the building materials but we often have to purchase the land at the going rate on which to build the house. We look for property that is located in a village/town so that the families, who eventually purchase the home, are able to access the amenities that are available, such as transportation, banking, local shopping for food and other items, etc. One way to think about Habitat is it is a process that provides a hand up not a hand out.
