WHO WE ARE
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds simple, decent and affordable houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families.
Lives & Communities
Since its founding in 1985 (First Affiliation in Oklahoma), our Local Chapter of Habitat for Humanity and its supporters have built 27 homes for Enid, Oklahoma families.
Our program is designed to make home ownership possible for low-income families that don’t qualify for traditional loans, but have demonstrated the ability to repay a Habitat mortgage and are in urgent need of a safe, decent place to live.
Promoting Dignity and Self-Reliance
Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with zero interest mortgages. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses. Habitat offers a hand up, not a hand out.
Promoting Sustainable Development
As an authorized affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, our office coordinates all aspects of Habitat home building in the Enid, OK area, including fundraising, building site selection, partner family selection and support, house construction and mortgage servicing.
Building Leadership and Teamwork
In addition to the monthly mortgage payment, partner families invest 350 hours of their own labor – sweat equity – into building their home and the homes of others.
