Saturday, Nov. 8, 10 to 11 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church on 114 SW 8th Street, Corvallis

Families are considered for the housing program based on the following criteria:

  • Have a need for adequate shelter.
  • Have financial stability to pay mortgage.
  • Be willing to partner with Habitat and provide “sweat equity.”
  • Have been a Benton County resident at least one year.
  • Be able to verify citizenship or permanent residency.

Benton Habitat for Humanity observes fair housing laws and therefore does not base family selection on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual preference, handicap, or national origin. Habitat homes may be built handicap accessible as necessary to accommodate the family’s needs. Questions? Contact the administrative office at 541-752-3354 or admin@bentonhabitat.org.
