Home Ownership

Habitat for Humanity Menominee River (HFHMR) of Iron Mountain-Kingsford, MI is a community-based organization that works to eliminate poverty housing in Dickinson County. We do this by building and selling to eligible families simple decent homes. To keep the costs reasonable, HFHMR relies on local volunteers to build homes and change neighborhoods.

Home ownership is provided in two ways; new home construction and rehabilitation houses. HFHMR offers 1 - 3 homes per year to partner families.

HFHMR has three requirements for home purchase qualitifactions.

1. Show Need A potential HFHMR family must show they have a need for new housing. A family can show need in several ways including (1) currently living in conditions that are substandard, (2) currently living in a home that is too small for the family's needs, (3) the home, in some way, creates a financial hardship for the family.

2. Willingness to Partner Families must be willing to partner with HFHMR while their home is being built. Specifically, each adult member of the family must volunteer 200 hours each to the building of the home.

3. Ability to Pay A HFHMR home mortgage is about $450 per month. An applying family must be able to show that they can afford this payment. In addition family income may not exceed these maximum income guidelines.
