…that 1 in 6 households in the U.S. spend more than half of their income on housing? These families are forced to make impossible choices. Safe homes. Nutritious food on the table. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation.
At Habitat Choptank, we are working to ensure that no family has to pay anywhere near half their paycheck for housing. We know that a safe, decent, affordable home is fundamental to a family achieving better health, more financial freedom, independence, stability and security.
Since 1992, Habitat Choptank has made home ownership possible for 90 families and has completed critical health and safety repairs in partnership with over 185 qualifying homeowners. Income qualifying homebuyers are offered access to affordable mortgage financing in order to purchase a new construction or rehabbed home from our project inventory.
We envision a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live beginning with the eradication of poverty housing in blighted neighborhoods in Dorchester & Talbot Counties.
