Homeownership Program

Dorchester Habitat for Humanity builds Homes in partnership with qualifying families, using as much donated material and labor as possible. Homes are sold at no-profit and financed with no-interest mortgages, making the monthly payments affordable.

Habitat for Humanity is an equal opportunity program. We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Individuals from all races, sexes, and creeds are encouraged to apply.
