build brighter futures
We partner with families in need of decent, affordable housing to build a place to call home.
No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone deserves a decent place to live. Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia provides a hand-up, not a handout, to families in need. People in Habitat’s Homeownership Program partner to build brighter futures for themselves and their families. We work with individuals who might not otherwise qualify for a traditional mortgage.
Habitat builds and rehabs houses in the Philadelphia area, which are available for purchase with an affordable mortgage to people in our Homeownership Program. See if you are eligible below.
Please note: Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is temporarily pausing acceptance of new homeownership program applications. If you have attended an in-person information session or online infosession and received a blank application from Habitat, please understand that we will not receive completed applications until we have reopened our program application acceptance period. When a new application acceptance period opens, we will contact anyone who already has an application in hand to let them know that they are able to submit their completed applications to Habitat.
