Volunteers are the foundation of everything we do at Habitat. You may volunteer on our build site, in the ReStore, in our administrative offices or on committees. You must be 16 years or older to work on our build site, but we do have opportunities for volunteers of all demographics. We welcome all levels of ability.

Our goal at Habitat for Humanity Northumberland is to break the cycle of poverty through promoting homeownership. Our Homeownership Program helps individuals and families in financially vulnerable situations BUILD and BUY decent affordable homes. Once they become mortgage-paying homeowners, their payments then help fund the building of other homes for future Habitat homeowners. 

Habitat for Humanity homes are sold with:

  • No down-payment
  • Interest-free mortgages
  • Mortgage payments set at 25% of gross income
  • Homeowner training and support services

In order to qualify for this program homebuyers must be able to demonstrate their need, their ability to carry a mortgage, and contribute a minimum of 500 hours of "sweat equity" into building their own home or providing other assistance to Habitat for Humanity.
