Families and individuals in need of decent, affordable housing apply for homeownership with their local Habitat for Humanity.
Each local Habitat's Family Services Committee selects homeowners based on three criteria:
Habitat for Humanity follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing Habitat's homeowners.
*Please note: St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity does not offer short-term housing, rental housing, or immediate occupancy.
"From the beginning, we have insisted on nondiscriminatory family selection criteria for all Habitat homeowner families, which we believe to be consistent with the universal love of God. No one is excluded from that love. Neither race nor religion determines who will receive a Habitat home. Need is the paramount criterion."
