Thank you for your interest in obtaining a Habitat for Humanity home. 

Since 1976,  Habitat for Humanity International has helped 9.8 million individuals and families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.  Locally, Watauga Habitat has built 29 homes.   If you or someone you know finds themselves facing barriers to opportunity due to inadequate living conditions, we may be able to help.

At Habitat, we believe that everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home. Unfortunately, statistics tell us that one in four households in the U.S. pays more than 30 percent of their income for housing and may have difficulty affording necessities such as food or clothing.  Habitat for Humanity International has spent the past 40 years partnering with those who want to build better lives for themselves. We know, and have seen the data, that people thrive physically, mentally and financially when their home environment improves.

If you support our mission and now find yourself asking how you too can become a Habitat homeowner, please review the qualifications below. Habitat homeownership is a foundation for a brighter future.
