Apply for a Habitat Home

At Habitat for Humanity Lethbridge we believe that everyone should have access to decent, affordible housing. We believe that by building strength, stability and self-reliance in a partnership with families that we may achieve this goal.


Families within your community may partner with Habitat to build a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

Families in need of decent, affordable housing may apply for homeownership with their local Habitat for Humanity. Each local Habitat’s family selection committee selects homeowners based on three criteria: The applicant’s level of need, their willingness to partner with Habitat and their ability to repay a mortgage through an affordable payment plan.

As part of their willingness to partner, Habitat’s homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labour, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners.


Habitat for Humanity follows a non-discriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing Habitat’s homeowners.
