Boundary County Habitat for Humanity is a group of volunteers dedicated to building decent, affordable homes for families in need.

The homes, built with contributions of money, materials, labor and love, are then sold without interest or profit to families who do not qualify for bank loans.

When approved, applicants will be asked to make a $800 down payment one-year to help cover closing costs.
