Habitat for Humanity: Information Sessions - March 14, 2009

Habitat for Humanity will be hosting two information sessions on March 14 at the First Baptist Church in Silver Spring (10am and 2pm). These are for residents interested in applying to buy one of Habitat’s houses in the Glenmont/Aspen Hill area. Habitat has partnered with Montgomery County to buy foreclosed houses, rehab them up (including “greening” them) and then sell them to qualified buyers with an affordable long-term mortgage.

There are a number of requirements – income minimums and maximums, must be a permanent, legal resident, have to spend 200-500 hours working on the house – and there are a limited number of houses.

But, it would be a great opportunity for those that do meet all the requirements. Please forward this on to anyone you think would be interested and/or possibly qualify. And the website is: http://habitat.montgomery.md.us/

To attend the session, please contact Habitat directly – they have limited slots for each session. 301.990.0014 ext. 15 or 18.
