Building Sweat Equity in Your New Home

Habitat Partner Families must complete a minimum number of sweat equity hours.  Partners earn their hours by helping to build their own home and the homes of other families.  They also can earn sweat equity by working in The Habitat Store, in the Habitat office, or by representing Habitat at public functions.

Families must earn 200 or more hours depending on how many adults live in the household.  Many of our Habitat families earn upwards of 300 hours, and some continue to help building the homes of others even after their sweat equity requirements are completed.

Once you have been accepted as a Habitat Partner Family, you will sign up for sweat equity hours with the Volunteer Manager. You can reach the Volunteer Manager by email or by calling the office at 434.293.9066.
