Habitat for Humanity is seeking applicants for homes. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian housing ministry welcoming people of all backgrounds to help build homes for families in need here in the Greater Peoria Area.  Habitat is financed through donations from individuals, organizations and churches in partnership with volunteers who donate their time and talents. Our mission is to build homes with qualified families who cannot purchase a home through conventional means and to sell the homes without making a profit and at a zero interest rate.

 

Habitat for Humanity’s general guidelines for selecting applicants—Need, Ability to Pay and Willingness to Partner—will be explained in Orientation Meetings held at the end of February. Anyone who would like more information about Habitat for Humanity and what it takes to qualify for a home is invited to attend at no cost.

 

There will be a drawing for a $100 ReStore Gift Certificate for those in attendance.
