We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, or sources of income.
The ultimate goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing and homeless from the face of the earth by building adequate, basic housing. Furthermore, all of our words and actions are for the ultimate purpose of putting shelter on the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that poverty housing and homelessness become socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable in our nation and world.

Dream of owning your own home? Help build a home of your own - apply today to become a Habitat for Humanity of Knox County Partner Family.
Families are selected on a variety of factors, including need, income, and willingness to participate as a partner with Habitat. The family Selection Committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to the Board for approval. Income must be sufficient to make timely, low, monthly, no interest mortgage payments, but not such that they could acquire a loan through conventional financing.
Requirements for Habitat for Humanity homeownership:
Habitat is not a "giveaway" program. Partner Families repay a 30 year, no-interest, mortgage which covers land and building costs. Most labor is done by volunteers. Mortgage payments are "re-cycled" to help build more houses, but are not enough to fund the entire program. Habitat raises additional money with various events and annual community fund raising drives (Habitat is not a United Way Agency). The support of individuals, churches, businesses, and other organizations has been crucial in the success of our mission. For the past several years, Habitat has received grants from the Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP), which have partially funded several houses.
Requirements for Habitat for Humanity Financing a Home:
a. Bankruptcy fully discharged for one year
b. No court ordered debt
