After attending an annual mandatory orientation, families receive a homeownership application. The application must be completed by a pre-determined deadline. Habitat schedules a home visit for all families that meet the partnership criteria. A family selection committee then determines the partner families based on need and the number of houses Evergreen Habitat plans to complete during the year. To learn more about the application process and learn how to apply, see here.
Because Habitat homes are built primarily by volunteers and the partner families, construction typically takes about nine months but can take longer. Evergreen Habitat will notify family partners of ground breaking and build dates.
Partner families are expected to participate in Evergreen Habitat events and fundraisers. The organization relies on compelling family stories to generate interest in volunteering and fundraising which are a vital part of Habitat’s ability to build homes.
