Myth: Habitat homeowners get their home for free.

Truth: Habitat homeowners pay a monthly mortgage, but at a 0% interest rate.


Faith Build 2019

Our Faith Build home is making amazing progress. In September we were able to paint and continue on construction inside of the home. This home has been funded and sponsored through local churches, and the FVHFH affiliate and homeowner, Andrea, are so grateful for their generosity. Andrea's home will be dedicated on December 7th.
