HfHAC builds simple, decent homes for families in need in Archuleta County. We partner with families who have annual incomes between 30-50 percent of about $15,000-$20,000, or higher with larger families.

Selection is based on need, current living conditions, one-year residency in Archuleta County, willingness to do sweat equity hours partnering with Habitat volunteers and adequate income to repay a 25-year mortgage
