We want every family in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties to have a safe, decent and affordable home where they can be proud to live. When we partner with families and individuals, not only do we help them build a new home, we help them develop the skills they need to become successful homeowners.
We also partner with homeowners whose households do not have the ability to set aside funds to put toward home maintenance and repair, and many critical home issues go unresolved for years resulting in accumulative damage. We work to increase the health, wellness, dignity and pride of homeowners and residents.
Program Partners are selected based on:
Level of need
Ability to pay an affordable mortgage or loan
Willingness to partner which includes taking classes in financial management and budgeting, home maintenance, as well as performing ‘sweat equity hours’ to help build, renovate or repair projects under construction.
