Opportunities for veterans and service members

Habitat Homeownership

We make it easier for veterans and current service members to enter our homeownership program. They are given special consideration, including being exempt from having to be first-time homeowners.

Depending on your situation, you have the option to buy a home built or rehabbed by Habitat, or buy a home on the open real estate market. The affordable, fixed-interest mortgage will never be more than 30% of your income at closing.

Critical Home Repairs

We also make it easier for veterans and current service members to receive home repairs through our A Brush with Kindness home repair program. They must have lived in their home for at least one year, instead of the two-year requirement for other homeowners.

A Brush with Kindness includes exterior painting, health and safety repairs, home modifications for aging in place, and more.

Other ways to engage


There are many ways for Veterans and current service members to volunteer. This includes group volunteering on a build site or at a ReStore Home Improvement Outlet, regular or one-day volunteering for individuals, and more.

Career Opportunities

The skills veterans have could fit well with current job openings, and we welcome all veterans to apply.
