Becoming a Homeowner

About our Homeownership Program

Habitat for Humanity of Chester County works in partnership with volunteers, donors and the entire Chester County community to build simple, decent, affordable homes for low-income families. Habitat homes are not free; homeowners pay a 0% interest mortgage and spend 200+ hours of “sweat equity” helping to build their neighborhood.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
