Everyone deserves a decent, safe and affordable place to call home
L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity is an faith-based nonprofit organization that works to provide affordable housing. We use private donations and volunteer labor to build homes with those in need of decent, affordable housing in Nez Perce or Asotin County. We adhere to the spirit of federal fair housing law; anyone is welcome to apply no matter their personal beliefs or background. Habitat asks only that they meet the qualifications listed below.
Habitat is a hand up, not a hand out. Future Habitat homeowners must save a down payment, put in time helping build the home, attend classes and workshops designed to help them become successful homeowners, and purchase the home from Habitat with a zero or very low interest mortgage. L-C Valley Habitat sets the mortgage based on the cost to build the home and, considering the costs of insurance and taxes, what would be an affordable monthly payment for the homeowner.
Habitat homeowners are active participants in building a better future for themselves and their families. They get a hand up, not a handout.
Turn your dream of owning a home into a reality.
Lewis Clark Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent, affordable housing for families in need that reside in The Valley. We build houses where we can find affordable or donated land in Asotin County, WA and Nez Perce County, ID.
Habitat homeowners achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Shelter they helped build.
They complete hundreds of hours of sweat equity building their own home and homes of other Habitat families, attend financial workshops and homebuyer classes, save for their closing costs and pay an affordable mortgage. It’s hard work but it’s worth it.
Home ownership is a real commitment, the process can take over a year from start to finish. Our Site Selection Committee finds and determines the location of the home. Our Homeowner Selection Committee runs the application screening process and makes the final selection.
