The Habitat Family Selection Committee is a staff-supported group of volunteers that includes people with backgrounds in healthcare, law, finance, education and social services. They bring expertise with respect to various challenges faced by families and children in low-income situations.
Committee members interview prospective families in their homes and communicate with landlords and employers. References provided by the family are checked and family finances and credit ratings are reviewed carefully.
Habitat for Humanity partners with families who are ready for the responsibility and challenges of homeownership, but would not qualify for a traditional mortgage. The selection of families is based on three principles: need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner.
