Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity’s New Build Program is an opportunity for a qualifying low-income person or persons to purchase a simple, decent and affordable home in northern Ocean County.

Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes; each home is purchased with a low mortgage affordable to a qualifying low income person or persons. Homes are able to be affordable due to the many valued partners and volunteers who generously provide complimentary or discounted services for the purpose of assisting those less fortunate.

Homeowners must be able to pay an affordable mortgage and be willing to accept the responsibilities of being a good neighbor and a positive part of the community by maintaining their home and property.

Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, handicap, religion, marital status, or because all or part of the applicant’s income is derived from public assistance programs.
