Bend Area Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to providing affordable homeownership and home repair services for low income families and individuals in Bend and Crook County.
We provide an opportunity for families and individuals to purchase affordable homes and home repair services. Qualified applicants are accepted into our partnership program and commit a minimum of 500 hours of "sweat equity" or volunteer time as their down payment. In addition, they attend monthly homeownership and financial classes. Upon completion of program requirements and home loan approval they then purchase the home from us at 0% interest (.001%APR) or 0% equivalent. Families are responsible for their own property taxes and homeowners insurance.
To make all of this possible and keep our services affordable, we partner with the Bend and Crook County communities. The community can donate monetarily, through donations of materials and services and of course volunteer labor is very helpful!
