“We specifically want to reach those who are looking for housing stability. We want to provide an opportunity for individuals to empower themselves and to overcome their current situation. Dreams are possible through our program,” says Director of Family Services Sarah Curtis. “I see it happen with every set of keys we hand over to a family. I see it when a child is playing in their own backyard for this first time. We can help that become a reality.”
Amarillo Habitat for Humanity Partner Families are chosen by a Family Selection Committee who consider multiple factors including the HUD Median Family Income Chart, employment history and credit references. The formal application process also includes a current home assessment to establish need. Habitat provides an interest-free mortgage loan. Principal payments are used to fund the building of future homes for other qualified, partner families.
