Becoming a Habitat Homeowner


Applications for Holston Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program will be available during February 2022 for homes to be built in Kingsport, Elizabethton, and Bristol, Virginia in spring 2023. Individuals and families interested in this opportunity are encouraged to revisit this page during February to download and print an application.  If you do not have access to a printer, you may contact the Holston Habitat administrative office at 423-239-7689 to request an application packet to be sent to you through the mail.

Holston Habitat brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. We provide individuals and families with limited financial resources and housing need with an opportunity to build and purchase an affordable home. We believe that no matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve a decent place to live. We deserve the stability offered through an affordable home and the strength to build our own futures. 

Working alongside volunteers, our homebuyers contribute the sweat equity (volunteer labor) toward the construction of their home, the homes of others, and other Habitat projects. Our homebuyers also attend homeowner education classes, save for closing costs, and commit to improving their financial health. Once construction is complete, our homebuyers attend a closing where the homes are sold to them through an affordable Habitat mortgage and they become homeowners!
