Did you know that homes in the Habitat for Humanity program are built almost entirely by volunteers?
Today, several Sims-Lohman team members volunteered to meet and help our lead carpenter Jack Chard with the installation of donated cabinetry and countertops in a historic Cincinnati West End neighborhood. The home is being built for a deserving family in the partnership housing program offered by Habitat. The neighborhood is slowly being restored back to the original architectural features from the early 1900s.
Here is how their Homeownership Program Works:
- More than 600 families have purchased Habitat for Humanity homes in Greater Cincinnati since 1986.
- Homebuyer requirements: ability to pay Habitat’s 0% interest mortgage, invest up to 500 hours of “sweat equity,” completion of homeownership classes, a willingness to partner with HFHGC.
- Homebuyer income must be between 30%-60% of the area’s median income.
- HFHGC is committed to revitalizing neighborhoods by building new homes and rehabbing usable homes.
Your financial gift helps to build homes and hope throughout the Tri-state area. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati is a fiscally responsible organization that pairs your donations with revenues generated by our ReStores to ensure affordable homeownership for families. Give a gift that builds more than a house – give a gift that builds brighter futures for families and their children. If you’re interested, there are many additional ways to support Habitat’s efforts.
