About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity builds with Insulated Concrete Forms, a concrete-and-foam wall system that results in a very air tight, very well insulated home. Inside the walls, the homes incorporate energy efficient appliances, low-allergen flooring and low-flow plumbing fixtures; all in addition to a rigorous homeowner education process that includes home maintenance and energy conservation.

To qualify for a Habitat home, families must currently live in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortg .....
