Home ownership is the goal of most American families. Having roots in a community where you live and work, raise your chiledren, shop and attend social events is the desire of all humanity. Habitat for Humanity Calaveras (HfHC) provides home ownership to responsible local families who already live and work in the community but have yet to own their first home. Together with volunteers, families partner with us to build a simple but modern home that they then buy on very favorable terms. Each family volunteers 400 hours of ‘sweat equity’ and then has a mortgage based on the cost of building the home and their ability to pay.
Contrary to popular belief, Habitat Homes are NOT free!

Habitat families become property owners building equity and stakeholders in the community.  Habitat is a ‘Hand Up’ NOT a ‘Hand Out’. The county benefits from an increased pool of affordable housing, while donors and volunteers are rewarded through their contribution to the local community. Communities become stronger with hard working families building a new life full of promise and hope.
