Habitat for Humanity to hold homeowner orientation

Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County will hold an orientation meeting for those interested in becoming Habitat homeowners. The meeting will take place online via Zoom at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26.

The link needed to attend the Zoom meeting will be made available by contacting the Habitat office at hfhdekalbcounty@gmail.com.

There are four basic criteria individuals or families must meet to be considered for Habitat homeownership: a need for adequate housing, the ability to pay a mortgage, residence within DeKalb County and the willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County in the construction of the home.

Attending this meeting is the first of the required steps to becoming a Habitat homeowner. At this meeting, the requirements and qualifications for being accepted as a partner family will be explained and application forms will be available.

Those interested in attending the meeting are asked to contact the Habitat office before Oct. 26 by email at hfhdekalbcounty@gmail.com to register, and to indicate any need for special services (e.g., translator) at this meeting.

HFHDC is planning to begin construction of a home in the spring.
