Women Build Project Begins
Habitat for Humanity International and LOWES sponsor the National Women Build Week at over 300 sites across the United
States. This year Fergus Falls Area Habitat for Humanity has been selected as a Women Build site.
We had our latest Groundbreaking on May 10th at 111 Lydia Lane. This
will be site of our newest home. We also began construction of the wall panels at our new warehouse / office site at

Apply for a New House Today!
Applications for a House are being taken.
The Board of Directors has announced that
our Affiliate will begin taking applications for a house to be constructed in 2015. The most likely place for this house
will be Fergus Falls, but there is always a chance that another location may come about -- particularly if a home is donated
to the Affiliate.
To apply click the link below and complete the application and mail the
signed original to the Affiliate. Do not include anything that is not a copy. We will not return your copies,
nor will we make copies for you. Consider that your first bit of "sweat equity" on the house. Please do not send
original tax statements, insurance information or pay stubs. Make sure that you sign the application in ink. Always
include both your cell phone number and an e-mail address.
The review process takes several
months and includes a home visit and several personal interviews. If selected for the home you are expected to participate
in fund raising efforts that do include informing the public that you are the new "Habitat family." If you would be
uncomfortable with that role it would be best not to apply. Likewise, our families must provide 500 hours of "sweat
equity" on the home. If you are handicapped and can not perform construction tasks, you will still be required to provide
up to 500 hours of non-construction work. Veteran's with honorable discharges are strongly urged to apply.
