Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio is pleased to announce The VETERANS BUILD Homeowner Program.

In an effort to assist those who have so selflessly served this country in the United States Armed Forces, Habitat MidOhio has crafted a homeownership plan designed to uniquely honor our veterans who qualify to become homeowners.

Qualified veterans can receive up to $10,000 of mortgage reduction based on years of service.

A decent place to live creates stability, launching families into a promising cycle of progress, and a better quality of life. Over 300 families in Franklin and Licking counties have realized their dream of affordable homeownership, thanks to Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio.

Habitat MidOhio is a partnership—not a charity. we provide a hand up, not a hand out, which creates partnerships with volunteers and homeowners. homes are not free. qualified homeowners buy their houses through zero-interest, no-profit mortgages and invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity.

For more information on the veterans build program or to apply, please contact Lisa Jones at 614-364-7014 or via e-mail at: ljones@habitatmidohio.org. To find out how you/your company can support the veterans build program, please call 614-364-7031. To learn more about Habitat for Humanity MidOhio click here.
