Itasca County Habitat is looking for partners to build with next year.
Your dream of owning your own home could be closer than you think?
Habitat offers a zero percent mortgage. How does that benefit you?
Let’s do a little math.
Here is (roughly) the mortgage payment on a $120,000 home loan with an interest rate of 4.5 percent.
You would pay $218,888.05 on a 30-year loan. That’s $98,888.05 in interest payments!
Here’s what you’d pay on a $120,000 mortgage loan with Habitat for Humanity……..$120,000.
If you’re interested in this opportunity or know someone who is, please have them call us at 218-999-9001.
Habitat for Humanity has a pretty good YouTube channel. They post a lot about the world-wide reach of what we do.
Here’s a good link to a video that summarizes what we accomplished around the world this year….and what still needs to be done.

But once you dig a little bit, you realize the main thing we attempt to build is…people.
To understand that better, we tell stories.
Here are some of them.

Habitat builds homes with three general principles. The homes must be:
How those houses are built after that???
It’s a local story. Homes are built with wood, fired clay bricks, concrete blocks…anything that is local and will fit into the local setting.
In Papua New Guinea, they’re built on stilts because of the heavy rain!
