Financial education

Becoming a homeowner is a large endeavor for everyone involved. It takes a lot of hard work and determination, but we continually meet people like you who are up for the challenge.

We want to do everything we can to help prepare you for the day you receive your keys, and well beyond. One way we do that is through financial education.

Is financial education required?

Yes, to become a Habitat homeowner, you must complete our required financial education program. Even if you feel like you have a good understanding of personal finance, we believe there is always more to learn. Our proven system of practical advice and techniques has benefited thousands of others over the years, and we know that you will feel more prepared and proud of your accomplishment after completion.


How long does the financial education process take?

Local offices conduct their classes differently. You will be provided with this information and much more as you begin the homeowner process, but please feel free to contact your local Habitat for more specific information.


What else is required as part of sweat equity?

Sweat equity can include the physical work you’ll do on your own home, helping build the homes of others, working in one of our ReStores, taking Habitat classes, and more.
