The ABWK program is simple in nature. Habitat for Humanity provides the donated volunteer labor and the homeowner pays for the necesary materials to repair the home's exterior through a zero interest loan. Yes, you read correctly, a zero interest loan. You don't see too many of those nowadays, especially in construction. These loans can range up to $5,000 and payments are individually tailored for each famliy based on financial need. However, to qualify for this program, homeowners must meet a minimum criteria.
As part of our search, we will be having a presentation on the ABWK program and how it works at the Nyeland Community Center (3334 Santa Clara St.) on Thursday February 23, 2012 at 7:00 pm. We will feature some cool before and after pictures of the homes we have transformed and answer questions as well.
