What We Do
Habitat for Humanity Missoula partners with eligible families in order to provide modest, energy-efficient homes for those living in substandard housing. We sell our homes to partner families at cost through an interest-free mortgage program, allowing us to make the homes affordable for each family.
How We are Financed
Habitat for Humanity of Missoula is financed through donations from individuals, clubs, churches, businesses, and agencies; grants from private foundations; in-kind donations from local and national companies; and house payments recycled to build more homes.
How Families are Selected
Families are selected after a lengthy, detailed, nondiscriminatory process which includes applications, interviews, and home visits. For more information on qualifications, click here
