Habitat's homeownership program allows hardworking, low-income families to build and buy a home with a 0%-interest mortgage after completing 500 sweat equity hours.
Hunger and Homelessness
Habitat for Humanity in Salem is in need of volunteers to help them build homes, work in the ReStore, and help with special projects that benefit the organization. As a volunteer you can choose to volunteer as little or as often as you would like . All of the volunteer positions provide a tremendous help that directly or indirectly results in the construction of simple, decent homes.
Sign ups for those who wish to volunteer building homes can be found here (you will need to register first).
