Habitat For Humanity Is A Nonprofit, Ecumenical Christian Housing Ministry Dedicated To Eliminating Substandard Housing And Homelessness Worldwide And To Making Adequate, Affordable Shelter A Matter Of Conscience And Action. Habitat Invites People From All Faiths And Walks Of Life To Work Together In Partnership, Building Houses With Families In Need. Syracuse Habitat for Humanity works to develop leadership, education and economic self-sufficiency in our homeowners. Homeowners must complete a required training course sponsored by Home Headquarters on: homeownership, maintenance and continued home care. Also required are 300 "sweat equity hours" which provide hands-on training on home repair and maintenance. In addition, several of our homeowners advanced their academic education because of their homeownership. Homeownership builds personal equity; owning a home is the most effective way to gain economic self-sufficiency and independence. Our homeowners change their socioeconomic status simply through homeownership. Syracuse Habitat for Humanity provides continued training and counseling for homeowners on personal budgeting and the ability to maintain a cost-effective home through working knowledge of repairs and potential costs.

Note: Apartments may not have openings or may have long waiting lists. Call for complete details.

Apartment Checklist

Check For Waiting Lists

Most apartments have waiting lists. Search early and do not just settle on one apartment choice.

Contact Your Local Housing Authority

Housing authorities have many opportunities. Many do have closed waiting lists, but they may be able to provide other public housing resources.

Check The Federal Poverty Sliding Scale Guidelines

Check to see if you qualify for low cost or free housing by comparing the guidelines to your income records.
