How to Qualify for a Habitat Home
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County is a fair housing lender. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, or sources of income.
