Due to the pandemic and high demand, we are not currently accepting applications to our program. We plan to reconsider possibly resuming applications July 1. When we resume, it will be posted here.
The Habitat program is not easy nor is it quick. You must commit strongly to improving your living situation and be willing to work hard to achieve your dream of home ownership. How quickly you move through the program depends on how quickly you earn your hours AND on the construction progress of those houses ahead of yours. For most people, it takes about a year to earn their first hundred hours. Construction progress varies, but it could be an additional year to around 2 years after your application is approved before you move into your new house.
After reviewing the Qualifications information below, if you are interested in applying for home ownership through Habitat for Humanity of Alamance County, you may click here to print an application in English.

You will also be notified whether you are accepted or rejected for the program.
