At the core of Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Wood Buffalo is a vision–a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
Often, the only barrier between a Habitat family and a conventional mortgage is their income level. HFH Wood Buffalo provides affordable home ownership opportunities to qualified, low-income families who are unable to qualify for a conventional mortgage.
Habitat homes are not given to families for free; rather, homes are sold to qualified partner families.
Applications are pre-screened based on three main criteria:
Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Wood Buffalo seeks out land and build opportunities within RM Wood Buffalo. We seek partner organizations to donate land, supplies, build materials and cash to acquire build lots and materials needed to construct our partner homes. Once land is secured and a plan is in place to build, we put out the call for applications for new partner families.
Upon making it through the initial screening process, families undergo credit checks, reference checks and a multi-step interview process. Successful candidates then embark on their journey to home ownership in partnership with Habitat.
