Partner Family Mentoring & Advocacy

The Session

Providing homeowner support is at the heart of our mission. Members of the Homeowner Support Committee are also Advocates. Advocates are the liaison between the home buyer and the Habitat affiliate. Advocates are partnered with home buyers once they are approved into the homeownership program. They have unique responsibilities working with and supporting families through “sweat equity”, homeowner education classes, budgeting, homeownership preparedness, the closing process and resources for up to one year after the closing.
