Habitat for Humanity of Allegheny Valley is seeking partner families to be homeowners. There will be an informational meeting on September 29, 2009 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The meeting will be held in the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills in Room 273, near Entrance 2, and across from Pearle Vision.
To qualify as to be a partner homeowner family, the family must currently live in substandard or overcrowded conditions, must meet the HUD guidelines for having low income, and be willing to work for 350 hours of sweat equity, provide a down payment of $1000. The partner homeowner would end up with a decent home and a 0% interest, affordable mortgage.
Habitat for Humanity of Allegheny Valley has partnered with 17 homeowner families over the last dozen years. If you know someone who might qualify to be our next homeowner family, make sure they know about the upcoming meeting. The flyer or bulletin insert might each be helpful ways to tell them about the opportunity.
