Affordable Home Ownership & Repairs

Habitat does not give away free houses. Habitat offers low interest rate mortgages and affordable homeownership opportunities. A future homeowner must show that they have a need for housing, are willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity and are able to pay for a Habitat mortgage.

Qualifying homeowners help build their brand new or renovated homes while participating in financial education and home maintenance courses provided by Milwaukee Habitat. In addition to homeownership opportunities, we also offer affordable repairs for existing homeowners.

Neighborhood Revitalization

We cluster our new home construction in neighborhoods in order to create vibrant, sustainable communities. Find out where we’re building.

Safe, affordable housing creates a ripple effect for families to build strength, stability, and independence.
In fact, we recently conducted a survey of all Milwaukee Habitat homeowners, and found out that: 87% of their children had graduated from high school. That’s nearly 30% higher than the average graduation rate of Milwaukee Public School students.
