Some prayers that we’re finding comfort in:

From the Bishop of the ELCA:
God, our peace and our strength, we pray for our nation and the world as we face new uncertainties around coronavirus. Protect the most vulnerable among us, especially all who are currently sick or in isolation. Grant wisdom, patience, and clarity to health care workers, especially as their work caring for others puts them at great risk. Guide us as we consider how best to prepare and respond in our families, congregations, workplaces, and communities. Give us courage to face these days not with fear but with compassion, concern, and acts of service, trusting that you abide with us always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Qualifying Criteria for Habitat Homeownership

We choose households on three main criteria:

1.  Need for Housing – your current housing is inadequate in some way or you’re paying too much of your income for rent.

2. Ability to Pay – you must be able to pay a mortgage that includes principal, interest, taxes and insurance.  Your household income needs to be at least $30,000/annually and not more than $68,700 which is 35-80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI).  Even if your income is in that range, you are not guaranteed to be selected for our program.

3. Willingness to Partner – our families aren’t customers or clients – they are our partners! You must be willing to contribute hours of sweat equity (time building your home).
