Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money, materials and land, Habitat builds affordable housing in East Hawaii. Habitat homes are then sold to qualified partner families at no profit and financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The new homeowners' monthly mortgage payments are then placed into a revolving fund that is used to help Habitat continue to build homes for additional partner families.
Studies show that homeownership improves health, has a positive effect on children, builds wealth and strengthens communities.
