Habitat for Humanity of Bedford County

HABITAT IS LOOKING FOR A PARTNER FAMILY FOR THE NEW HOME TO BE BUILT IN 2019

Habitat for Humanity, a Christian non-profit organization, partners with people in the community to help them build or improve a place they can call home. At this time we need your assistance in finding a Partner Family for a home to be built in 2019. Habitat’s “Partner Family” helps build their home alongside volunteers.

Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Building homes helps generations and also the community. Materials are purchased locally and skills are taught to volunteers. It helps a person give back to the community. It is a “hand up” not a “hand out.”

The Partner Family agrees to put many hours of “sweat equity” into the building and construction. This can be done through a variety of opportunities including office volunteering. The home is built with a lot of volunteer hours and donations of money and materials. The family pays low, affordable monthly payments to cover Habitat’s operating expenses.

Habitat presently owns a lot in Everett, PA, and hopes to break ground soon. There is an application and specific guidelines and criteria to be met to be approved for a new home. If you know a friend or family member who may qualify, please call 814-624-3443 and leave a message.
