What is a Habitat Home?
A Habitat home is a house built or renovated by Adams County Habitat for Humanity offered for sale to a family in need of a simple, decent place to live. Through a no-interest mortgage, Habitat makes it possible for families of low or modest income to buy a home of their own.
