About Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties:
Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties is celebrating its 31st anniversary as a chartered affiliate. It is one of the largest Habitat affiliates in the country, and has helped 1,286 families in Lee and Hendry counties become homeowners. Through the use of volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, homes are sold to the homeowners with an interest-free mortgage and monthly payments set at less than 30% of the homeowner’s income, making homeownership an affordable reality. Habitat homeowners must qualify financially for the program; save $1,200 toward their closing costs; attend a series of educational classes focusing on homeownership, budgeting and home maintenance; and complete 250 hours of “sweat equity” by volunteering at Habitat. It also supports Habitat for Humanity International by tithing a portion of its proceeds, allocated to Habitat’s global fund, disaster recovery in Haiti and initiatives in Latin America and the Caribbean.
