About Us

Habitat builds and repairs simple, decent homes for families who demonstrate need, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. Homes are sold to or repaired for the families at 0% interest through a mortgage/loan held by Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country.

The target population served by Habitat are those households that fall below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) adjusted annually according to HUD figures and to the size of the partner family. In Carbon County, the maximum gross income for a family of four is $49,440. In Emery County, the maximum gross income for a family of four is $50,700.

Habitat builds in partnership with the community, local businesses and the family itself. Habitat is not a giveaway program. Families put in a minimum of 500 hours of “sweat equity” into the house, working on-site during the construction process and pay a mortgage for the full cost of the house.

The “Habitat Way of Building” results in a lower house cost by utilizing volunteer labor along with local and national partners that provide materials in-kind.

Habitat for Humanity invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
