The Clinton Herald
---- — CLINTON — Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County is looking for applicants for its next home to be built in 2014.
Applicant families will be considered on three criteria — current housing situation is substandard or inadequate for the family; an ability to pay by proving family income is above approximately $26,000 annually; and a willingness to partner with Habitat by putting sweat equity into building the home, taking classes in financial planning, and other activities geared toward making home ownership successful.
Families who are interested in learning more about this opportunity should attend one of the upcoming informational meetings. Attendance at the meeting is the first step in the home building process, and it is the only way to obtain an application.
Meetings are from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, at First United Methodist Church in Clinton, and from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Central Community School in DeWitt.
Habitat for Humanity, Inc. is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate substandard housing by partnering with low-income families to build or renovate adequate, affordable housing that is sold to the partner family without profit or interest.
