NORMAN — First of 30 new homes complete and available for public tours
Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity is inviting the public to attend an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the organization’s first completed home in the Shelliebrook neighborhood, 591 S.W. 14th in Blanchard.
The Habitat for Humanity housing addition has 30 lots available, and the organization is currently accepting homeowner applications.
Habitat for Humanity’s homeowner program is based on the three criteria of need, ability to pay and willingness to partner.
Additionally, applicants must be willing to participate in financial planning and budgeting workshops, be active members of their Habitat neighborhood and approve a credit check.
“The open house is the first step in our exciting plan for the Shelliebrook neighborhood,” said Ann Felton Gilliland, chairman and CEO of Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity. “With 30 lots available, we are excited to join the Blanchard community and look forward to helping families realize their dreams of home ownership.”
Habitat for Humanity provides quality and affordable homes for families in need in central Oklahoma. Habitat homes have zero-interest mortgages and are built with energy efficiency to maximize affordability for homebuyers.
