Habitat for Humanity works to make homeownership of decent, affordable homes a matter of conscience and action.
Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County was founded in 1987; since then the affiliate has built and sold 71 homes locally, with the 72nd now under construction.
Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, low-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments come back to the affiliate to help build more homes for more families.
