Wilson Area Habitat for Humanity is looking for its next potential homeowner and will be offering a homeowner orientation session at 11 a.m. this Saturday in the Wilson County Public Library Conference Room. This presentation is free and open to all Wilson County residents.

Homeownership through Habitat is different than obtaining a mortgage through conventional means. Habitat does not charge any interest on its loans, saving homeowners thousands of dollars over time.

“Along with volunteers from the community, our partner homeowners are part of the construction process,” said Elisabeth Farnsworth, Wilson Area Habitat’s executive director. “Working together to build a home is a powerful thing, and I look forward to starting a new project once we find our next candidate.”

Housing applications will be given at the end of the meeting on Saturday.

Those who are unable to attend but would still like to apply are asked to call 252-291-0816 or send an email to director@wilsonhabitat.org. For more information about qualifications, visit http://wilsonhabitat.org/housing-programs/.
