Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria uses all donations directly for construction of new houses. Donations and sponsorships provide the money needed to build each of our houses. Mortgage payments and revenue from our ReStore sales also support the Habitat program. Here are some important points to remember about the Habitat program:
Habitat participants buy their house; it is not given to them;
Habitat participants must have jobs or steady income to qualify for the program;
Habitat families invest 200-400 “sweat equity” hours into building their home, the homes of others and by helping in Habitat’s ReStore.
Habitat families attend workshops about finances, credit, insurance, wills, home maintenance and landscaping;
Habitat has built 91 homes locally and will build 5 more in 2012.
Thank you for supporting the Habitat for Humanity program. If you have any questions please call Lea Anne Schmidgall at 676-6729, ext. 6, or send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
