Sweat Equity


Sweat Equity is not a simple programmatic requirement, nor is it in any way meant to be a test for partner families to pass or fail. Rather, sweat equity is an exciting cornerstone to the Habitat ministry, designed to meet three important goals:
  • Partnership – Sweat equity provides meaningful interaction between partner families, affiliate representatives and Habitat volunteers.
  • Pride in homeownership – Investing sweat-equity hours in their own homes helps families in the construction phase begin the transition to homeownership.
  • Development of skills and knowledge – On the building site, partner family members should gain a real understanding of the construction of their home and of maintenance issues they will face after occupancy.
