Habitat homeowners are required to contribute 500 hours of “sweat equity” before purchasing their homes.

Start working towards homeownership! 

If you are a home-buyer looking for construction times, please call our Homeowner Hotline at 716.204.0740, then press 5. If you have a friend or family member interested in donating sweat equity time, please email Habitat’s Volunteer Coordinator, Angela Watson, with the number of volunteers who will be building with you. 


If you are a home-buyer with questions about sweat equity, please contact John Kordrupel, Family Services Manager.
