Midland County Habitat for Humanity (MCHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Midland County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All are welcome

MCHFH has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Homeownership Walk In Application

We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home. To carry out our vision, we partner with individuals and families from application through construction to when the keys are handed over. By working with us from beginning to end, we can help prospective individuals prepare for the various responsibilities of homeownership, including learning about personal finances, mortgages, maintenance and upkeep of homes, and much more. Habitat’s path to homeownership is an important and in-depth process, requiring hard work, time and dedication. But this helps to ensure the long-term success of Habitat homeowners. How to qualify for a Habitat home Habitat homeowners must be active participants in building a better home and future for themselves and their families. Every Habitat home is an investment. For us, it is one answer to a critical need, and we believe that stronger homes will create stronger communities. Prospective Habitat homeowners must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing. Need will vary from community to community. Habitat homeowners must have income between 30% & 80% of the area median income for Midland County. To verify area median incomes, view our flyer: https://midlandhabitat.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/39/2019/09/Partner-Family-Flyer20.pdf Once selected, Habitat homeowners must partner with us throughout the process. This partnership includes performing “sweat equity,” or helping to build their own home or the homes of others in our homeownership program. Sweat equity can also include taking homeownership classes or performing volunteer work in a Habitat ReStore. Homeowners must also be able and willing to pay an affordable mortgage. Mortgage payments are cycled back into the community to help build additional Habitat houses. Walk in application dates are: Friday, Oct 11th 5 - 7pm Saturday, October 12th, 9am - 11am Friday, Oct 18th, 5 - 7pm Saturday, Oct. 19, 9am - 11am Friday, Oct. 25, 5 - 7pm Items to bring with you when you apply: 1. 2018 W2 and a recent paycheck stub (please include all incomes as this will help us determine if you can afford a Habitat home) 2.

Midland County Housing Analysis 2018

Most communities in America seek to be both economically sustainable and socially equitable. The twin goals, in their
combination, may be aspirational but they are worth striving for. To meet such lofty goals, a community must have a housing market that functions toward those ends.

Midland County’s housing market offers a kind of contradiction; it is both full of choice and generally affordable, but, at the same time, it is not supporting the community’s future economic vitality nor is it serving
the needs of the county’s poorest residents.

How can the Midland area community respond to the challenges and opportunities it is facing when it comes to housing? This report represents the beginning of an effort to answer that
question. czb was retained by Midland County Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with the City of Midland, the United Way of Midland County, and Midland Area Homes, to complete an analysis of the county’s housing market and to assess its affordable housing need.
