There is an ad in the week’s paper asking for families to apply for this program!
The following is from hemetsanjacintohfh.org/about.html:
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, tax exempt, organization dedicated to working with people in need to improve the conditions in which they live. Our major purpose is to build homes for people in substandard housing who can afford to improve their living standards by conventional means.
Each selected family must put in 500 hours of “Sweat Equity” or labor on Habitat projects, at least 400 hours on their own home and another 100 on another family’s.
The houses are then sold to the family at NO INTEREST-NO PROFIT, with payments within 30% to 40% range of their net income. Habitat for Humanity Hemet / San Jacinto Affiliate is committed to excellence in the community. We feel it is our responsibility to provide leadership and give back to the community as much as possible.
The Hemet/San Jacinto Habitat Affiliate has provided shelter for 76 people of which 50 are children.
