Habitat for Humanity of Angelina County, Inc. is a Christian based nonprofit organization. We build homes for families who would not qualify for conventional loans and/or who need safe housing. No government funds are used for construction, and all money is raised locally to build the homes with the majority of labor done by Volunteers. We also partner with YouthBuild America who also provide much of the labor free from charge! We finance each of the homes at no interest, no down payment and no closing costs over a period of 20 years. Each homeowner(s) must complete a minimum of 400-500 hours of "sweat equity" on the house before purchasing their home.
