Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County will be hosting an informational meeting for families looking to apply to the program for a home Monday, Feb. 26.
From 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at the downtown library, Habitat will lead a meeting about the process of applying for and obtaining a home through the program.
Bethany Anglin, family services director for Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County, said that they will be covering the application process and requirements.
“That (way) they can have all of the information about the process,” Anglin said.
“We’re looking for motivated families.”
Habitat is going to build a few houses in the Concord school district, she said but applying families do not have to currently live inside the district in order to apply.
The specific lots will be shown during the meeting.
According to Anglin, the entire process from application acceptance to move in is between 12 and 24 months.
“It’s not a short process,” she said.
While the home is constructed, families will attend home ownership classes about budgeting and other aspects while saving money for their closing costs and home owner’s insurance.
“That gives them time to get ready for all that stuff as well,” she said.
Habitat for Humanity Elkhart County builds between four and seven homes per year, she said and they hold selection meetings like this only once or twice a year, so don’t miss out.
