    Descriptive info: SUSTAINABLE MODEL.. What we do today impacts our future.. As stewards of God’s.. earth, we are committed to making a social, economic.. and environmental difference in everything we do.. Affordable Mortgages.. Acting as the mortgage holder, Habitat provides up to a 30-year zero-interest loan.. This allows homebuyers to have affordable house payments while providing Habitat with a steady source of funds to continue building homes for qualified homebuyer families.. Green Construction.. Not only are we passionate about building affordable homes, we believe in keeping them affordable for families once they move in.. By being wise about green building, we include only what will be most beneficial to families..

Before we celebrate the groundbreaking of a home, Habitat has the funding in place and has identified a home to live in it.. Through grants, donations, homeowner mortgage payments and ReStore funds, we are able to maintain financial sustainability.. This prevents Habitat from borrowing money for building and ensures each home has a family to live in it when construction is complete.. House..
