Habitat volunteers work side-by-side with Habitat homeowners, known as partner families. The partner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor and "sweat equity" into building their own houses and the homes of fellow partner families.
Habitat homes are sold to partner families at cost (no profit to Habitat) with a no-interest mortgage. Because there are no labor costs, no profits for the builders and no interest, most partner families pay less per month for their Habitat home than they paid in rent for a substandard dwelling.
HFHGC builds houses in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Buckingham, Greene and Louisa counties.
