Have you or someone in your household served in the Armed Forces?
We are actively looking for military and veteran’s families to apply for our program. Active military members and veterans may apply at any time and are not required to attend an application meeting.
Why is Habitat for Humanity focusing on veteran needs?
- Nearly 4 million veteran households pay more than 30 percent of income for housing.
- More than 1.5 million of these households pay more than 50 percent of income for housing (severe cost burden).
- Nearly 1 million veterans who own homes are severely cost burdened, despite having access to VA loans and other assistance.
- A substantial subset of veterans struggle economically. Approximately 1.4 million veterans (6.7 percent) live in poverty.
Please help us spread the word so we may serve military families and veterans that are in need of a simple, decent, affordable home. Any veterans or military families interested in learning more about our homebuyer program and how to apply should contact Mary Lamond at 770-886-4939 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
