Habitat to hold information session for potential homeowners

July 07, 2013

Habitat for Humanity of Washington County will hold an orientation/information session Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Habitat office, 100 Charles St. in Hagerstown, for those interested in becoming homeowners.

Habitat for Humanity is a hand up, not a handout. Houses are sold to approved families through a no-profit, no-interest loan, which the family repays with affordable monthly payments.

Those interested in learning more are encouraged to attend the meeting to begin the qualification process.

Applicants must be residents of Washington County for at least one year; must be in need of affordable, decent housing; must meet Habitat’s income guidelines and unable to obtain a home mortgage through conventional means; and must be willing to partner with Habitat.

Most questions regarding the Habitat homeownership program can be answered through the orientation process.

Habitat  is a volunteer based and donation- driven organization. Research has shown that a safe, affordable place to live has a profound effect on nutrition, health, childhood education and relationships. These facts make housing a primary concern for the community. 

With the support of the community, Habitat seeks to strengthen the community.

For more information, call Jessica Scott, program director, at  301-791-9009, send an email to jesssicascott@habitat-wc.org or go to www.habitat-wc.org.
