Own Your Own Home

Would You (or someone you know) Like to Own Your Home?

Palouse Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent, affordable housing for families in need on the Palouse. We build houses where we can find affordable or donated land in Latah County, ID and Whitman County, WA.

Our Site Selection Committee finds and determines the location of the home. Our Homeowner Selection Committee runs the application screening process and recommends an applicant to the Board of Directors.

Habitat home ownership is a serious commitment. The process can take over a year from start to finish.
