WILMINGTON — Habitat for Humanity is in the process of completing two houses in Wilmington for two families that decided paying rent was not what they wanted to be doing the rest of their lives. They completed applications and met all requirements, now they will be making house payments instead of rent.
Habitat builds houses in all areas of Clinton County. Habitat currently has lots available in the New Vienna, Wilmington and Blanchester areas. Applicants may choose the location desired. In general, families who are unable to meet the income and credit history requirements for conventional home loans often qualify for a Habitat house.
An example of income guideline for a family of four is $27,900 minimum and $40,200 maximum. Also considered are problems with current housing and your willingness to work with Habitat.
Anyone interested in applying for a Habitat house should attend the workshop at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17 in the Fellowship Hall of the Presbyterian Church, 840 Timber Glen Drive, Wilmington, for more information and applications. The Family Selection committee of Habitat for Humanity will guide you through the process of applying for a Habitat house.
