Homeownership Is a Partnership
Habitat for Humanity's mission is to eliminate substandard housing by building simple, decent homes for qualified, low-to-moderate income working individuals. We seek partnership with those who do not qualify for a conventional mortgage and do not have access to other homeownership options.
NW Metro Atlanta Habitat's homeowners purchase their homes. Habitat homes are for first-time homebuyers who meet strict qualifications for loan approval including having a strong work history and good credit standing. They qualify for mortgages that are interest free, low principal loans that they can afford to pay.
Applying for a Habitat home is a thorough and detailed process. People must determine if they meet our qualification requirements. Once those requirements are met and we begin accepting new requests, interested individuals fill out an Information Request Form (not currently available). They will be contacted with further instructions on how to become an applicant. Applicants for homeownership are approved based on the following criteria: A need for housing, a willingness to partner, and an ability to pay the monthly mortgage.
Buying a home from Habitat is a partnership which requires future homeowners to participate in certain principles of Habitat's mission.
In the 31 years since our founding, NW Metro Atlanta Habitat has changed the lives of over 479 families in Cobb, Douglas and Paulding Counties.
