The Wilson Area Habitat for Humanity is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Since 1991, we have built 16 houses in partnership with low-income families in need. This work would not be possible without our donors, our volunteers, our homeowners and our sponsors. Families in need of decent housing may find out about qualifications to be considered for Habitat Homeownership. The family selection process is based on need for shelter, ability to pay the mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat.
Habitat houses are sold at no profit, and Habitat mortgages charge no interest; therefore, Habitat homes are affordable to the target population of 30% to 60% of local median family income. Partner families must contribute at least 200 hours of “sweat equity” in their homes. Any Wilson County resident interested in applying to be a partner family may submit an interest form to the local Habitat office.
WAHFH owns and operates the local ReStore, which provides much-needed funds for us to fulfill our vision, which is “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
The Habitat International Mission Statement is: “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.” We invite you to support our efforts to eliminate poverty housing, both in Wilson County and throughout the world.
