Habitat for Humanity Hosts Information Sessions

Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity is currently accepting applications for homeownership in Curry Court.

The new 12-home Curry Court neighborhood, located in Candler, includes affordable single-family homes and townhomes. Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity (AAHH) is an Equal Opportunity Housing provider that serves local residents who earn 70% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) and who meet other program qualifications. Detailed information is available at ashevillehabitat.org or by calling (828) 251-5702.

Habitat homeowners include healthcare workers, teaching assistants, bus drivers, social workers, administrative professions, retail associates, and those who work in the service and tourism sector. Their mortgage payments range from $550 to $656/month, depending on the house and family size. For most Habitat homeowners, the mortgage payment is lower than current rent payments.

To participate and be eligible, homeowners must contribute at least 200 hours of sweat equity (volunteer service) as part of their partnership with Habitat.

Any eligible person interested in moving from renter to owner this year is invited to attend one of three upcoming Information Sessions. All sessions will be held at the Asheville Area Habitat office at 33 Meadow Rd.
