Already a homeowner? Be a Support Partner!
The basic goal of family support is to help families break the poverty cycle and become independent and self-sufficient. A Support Partner seeks to welcome new families into the habitat family and to provide them with a mutual support system, educational opportunities and a support form for discussions regarding homeownership and relevant Habitat policies and procedures.
