In partnership with donors and volunteers, Habitat Lake-Sumter’s Home Ownership program provides families access, opportunity, and guidance on attaining an affordable home.

Families partner with Habitat to pay an affordable mortgage and through “sweat equity,” which shows they are invested in the outcome of their new home. Sweat Equity is earned through several different activities such as volunteering on a Habitat worksite, in the ReStores, and through educational courses such as a First Time Homebuyer, Financial Literacy, and Credit Counseling classes.

For Home Ownership Application Questions, please call Program Coordinator, Dave at 352-483-0434 x 117
