About Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity of Williamson and Maury Counties (HFHWM) was fully incorporated as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International on December 5, 1992. We have built more than 240 homes in Williamson and Maury Counties and continue to build 10- 12 new homes per year. Home construction, critical repair, and neighborhood development services are funded through tax-deductible financial contributions; in-kind donations from local businesses, churches, civic organizations, and individuals; and profits generated from our affiliate’s ReStore.
Homes built by Habitat are not given away, and partner families must complete a homebuyer’s education program and earn at least 200 hours of “sweat equity” by working on their home and the homes of others. After a thorough qualification process, applicants are selected based on three criteria: the need for affordable housing, the ability to pay the mortgage, and the willingness to partner. Completed homes are SOLD with an affordable, zero-interest mortgage to the families, helping build the strength, stability, and independence to build a better life.
