Mission: Comal county habitat for humanity works with disadvantaged families by constructing and providing simple, decent, and affordable housing in comal county, texas. Selected families for a habitat constructed home must provide 350 hours "sweat equity" on their home or on another habitat project to complete their eligibility. Upon moving into the home, the family begins paying for the house under the terms of a 20 to 30 year, interest free financing arrangement. The sales price of each home is at or less than habitat's cost of constructing the home. Comal county habitat also operates a restore. The restore consists of one store selling new and used building materials, home furnishings, and decor. New, donated, and salvaged goods are sold to the public at a reduced cost. The proceeds of the sales provides funding for habitat's missions.
Programs: We build affordable, decent houses in partnership with homeowners, volunteers, and donors. We have built 34 houses, made repairs on 85, and completed development of the morning star subdivision that gives us 19 lots to build on for the next few years.
