Simple, Decent, Affordable Homeownership Opportunities

Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester is an equal opportunity home builder and seller. Our mission is to build homes, communities and hope. Our program serves families by providing home ownership opportunities in 42 cities and towns throughout the MetroWest and Greater Worcester regions of Massachusetts.

Habitat for Humanity believes in a hand up, instead of a hand out. As such, Habitat homes are built with generous donations, volunteer labor, and are sold to families at no profit.

• Maggie, Habitat Homeowner in Holliston, September 2018: “Having a home gives you a confidence boost, freedom, and strength. It is a cozy place to live and enjoy the things we like, whether it’s a garden with flowers, or healthy herbs.”

equal-housing-logo The Family Selection Committee uses the criteria to select families in a way that does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, handicap, religion, marital status or because all or part of the applicant’s income is derived from public assistance. We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there is no discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, age, or national origin.

Please complete the following HOMEOWNERSHIP INTEREST FORM to be contacted directly regarding homeownership opportunities. THIS IS NOT AN APPLICATION FOR HOMEOWNERSHIP. Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester staff will contact you via the phone or email address provided with more information on upcoming opportunities.

Once we verify that your family meets all the qualifications listed above, your pre-application will be evaluated based on three main areas:

  1. Need: Current housing is substandard or inadequate (overcrowded, too expensive or unsafe) or family income is insufficient to afford a conventional mortgage.
  2. Ability to Pay: Secure employment, good credit, legal residency, and the ability to afford monthly mortgage payments to Habitat.
  3. Willingness to Partner: Family agrees to work with Habitat and our volunteers for at least 400-500 hours including building Habitat homes, working in our ReStore/office, and homeownership education seminars.

Please note: When fitting family size to homeownership opportunities, families must have at least one person per bedroom but no more than two people per bedroom. Children of the opposite sex cannot occupy the same bedroom.
