Habitat for Humanity of Spartanburg is an ecumenical Christian ministry that changes lives by building safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with Spartanburg County community members in need.
What are the qualifications for this program?
What if I already own a home or land?
If you already own a home, land or other real property, we will factor this into your income assessment as an asset, so the value of the property may affect your eligibility. We do not build houses on land that we do not own and we do not perform whole-house rehabilitation at this time. If you are interested in exterior repair work, please consider our Critical Home Repair Program as an alternative.
How long is the process?
The application process typically takes four to six months to complete. After approval, it may take 12 to 18 months to ultimately move into your home. The exact timing may vary, depending on how quickly you submit all required paperwork, how quickly you complete all program requirements and where we are in our regular construction schedule.
How can someone get started?

Habitat Spartanburg typically offers these meetings monthly, so contact the Family Services Coordinator at 864.279.7875 to register for the next available meeting.
