Keys to Close: Homeowner Assistance

Thank You!

On Giving Tuesday 2023, the Habitat Family came together to raise more than $17,500 to support homeowners through the Keys to Close Homeowner Assistance Program!

While Giving Tuesday has passed, you can still make a gift to our annual fund to support our core programs of homeownership, home repair, and neighborhood revitalization.

Keys to Close Homeowner Assistance Fund

With every home built and sold, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia makes a commitment to work alongside homeowners throughout the life of their mortgage, from the initial down payment to the final payoff. We couldn’t do this without the support and generosity of the community.

The Keys to Close Homeowner Assistance Fund supports Habitat homeowners with:

♥ Down Payment Assistance

♥ Mortgage Subsidy

♥ ADA Accessibility

♥ Mortgage Payoff

♥ Refinancing

♥ Temporary Hardship

Keeping mortgages affordable and responding to homeowner needs is at the heart of Habitat Philadelphia’s mission to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Thank you for keeping Habitat homeowners in your heart during this season of giving.

Ms. Claudette purchased her home, a three-bedroom townhouse, from Habitat Philadelphia in 2007 with a 20-year mortgage. She faithfully made her payments every month, working alongside the Habitat team to understand her responsibilities and navigate any hiccups. By 2023, she was ahead of schedule with just a few thousand dollars remaining on her mortgage. Thanks to the Keys to Close Homeowner Assistance Fund, Ms. Claudette now owns her home outright earlier than she had dreamed possible.

Relive Ms. T’s joy when she received the good news about a surprise mortgage payoff! Your support makes moments like this possible.
