Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West (HFHSTW) works in partnership with God and people everywhere in our parish to put faith into action by building safe, affordable homes to address our growth-driven need for workforce housing.
HFHSTW offers families a hand up, not a hand out. In addition to completing 300-400 hours of "sweat equity" on their home and the homes of others, Partner Families attend homeowner education classes and pay a no-interest mortgage. The help of volunteers, just like us, is critical for the program's success in breaking the cycle of poverty housing. We are going to be helping finance and build a new home. You can buy “a piece of the home” for $50 and/or you can sign up to wield a hammer for one or more Saturdays when advertised.
