NWV Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry financed through private donations and volunteer labor that provides a unique opportunity for hardworking families to build and buy their own homes. Families with a household income level between 30% and 60% of median income for the area may qualify for one of our homes that are sold at no profit to our homeowner families with a zero interest mortgage. NWV Habitat for Humanity homeowner mortgage payments are put into a revolving fund that helps pay for construction of future homes in the north Marion county and south Clackamas county communities.
The selection of families who will purchase homes from NWV Habitat for Humanity is done by the Family Selection Committee in a way that does not discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, sexual orientation, age, gender identity or national origin or because all or part of the applicant’s income is derived from public assistance programs.
Every family is required to perform a minimum of 500 hours of volunteer work known as “sweat equity” within the NWV Habitat organization before moving into their home. Sweat equity is an exciting learning experience in which you work with friends, family and neighbors to build your home as well as homes for your neighbors. Working alongside volunteers and future neighbors to build your home and community is one of the most rewarding aspects of NWV Habitat for Humanity. Besides working on the construction site, you can also complete sweat equity hours working at our Canby or Mt. Angel ReStores.
