How does Habitat work?

Families partner with Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico to build better lives for themselves and their children, and help improve their communities.


  • Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico builds and rehabilitates affordable homes for hardworking families¬† in partnership with volunteers, private and public donors and the community.


  • Partner families must complete 320 hours of sweat equity on their future home and 80 hours of educational workshops.
  • Once the house is completed, the family acquires the home through a 25-year mortgage at 0% interest and no profit for Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico.


  • Monthly homeowner payments are placed in a fund, which helps the construction of additional homes.
