Habitat for Heroes provides current and former military members with the opportunity to engage in their community by volunteering and to provide former military members access to quality affordable housing.
APPLY TO PURCHASE A HOME
Habitat for Humanity is always accepting applications for former military members or veterans interested in becoming Habitat homeowners. Please review the information on our homebuyer page here about the program qualifications. A former military member or veteran is defined as a “person who served in the active military, naval or air service, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.”
Families will be selected for the Habitat for Heroes program according to the program qualifications. Habitat for Heroes families receive a 25% discount off the total house cost. The zero-interest Habitat mortgage includes real estate taxes and homeowners insurance and will be no more than 30% of the buyer’s income.
WORK WITH HABITAT
We are always looking for current and former military members to work with Habitat and are currently hiring. Please visit our Careers page for more information.
DONATE TO HABITAT
To ensure the success of this initiative, Habitat is actively seeking financial and in-kind resources for future Habitat for Heroes builds. It is our goal to continue to serve those who have served us. If you would like to get involved with this program with a financial or in-kind gift to support your local former military members and veterans, please contact CEO Janet V. Green at 757-913-5651 or email Janet@HabitatPGW.org.
