The no. 1 “myth of Habitat for Humanity of Kent County” is that they build and give homes away for free. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Not only do Habitat Kent home buyers actually buy the home, they have to earn 300-500 hours of sweat equity in order to move in. This sweat equity includes working on their home and other Habitat Kent homes as well as participating in 40 hours of required educational programs.
These educational programs cultivate an understanding of owning a home. From budgeting to lawn maintenance, the knowledge learned by Habitat Kent homebuyers lasts a lifetime.
