Watauga Habitat for Humanity is Looking for Future Homeowners

Watauga County Habitat for Humanity is hosting a Homeowner Information Meeting on Monday, February 25 at 6 p.m. at the Watauga County Library located on 140 Queen Street in Boone. Those interested in learning about Habitat’s Affordable Homeownership Program are encouraged to attend.

Habitat is currently accepting applications for the program until March 31, 2019. Eligibility criteria for a Habitat home include a housing need, the ability to pay an affordable mortgage and a willingness to partner with Habitat. Homeowners assist in building their own home and the homes of others. They also attend educational workshops on topics such as financial literacy and home maintenance so they are well prepared to be successful homeowners. The home being built will be a 3-bedroom house.

Homeowner applications can be found at https://wataugahabitat.org/homeownership and can be picked up at Watauga County Habitat for Humanity’s office located at 1200 Archie Carroll Road in Boone. For more information, contact Jennifer Ramey at 828-268-9545 or jennifer@wataugahabitat.org
