Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns (HFHEB) envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to call home. For 25 years HFHEB has put God’s love into action, to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Throughout this time Habitat has served more than 50 families with zero foreclosures in Sheridan County.
1 in 10 Wyoming families pay more than 50% of their income on a place to live, making the critical need for affordable housing evident. We serve families whose income is 30 percent to 60 percent of the current median income, as defined by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for Wyoming. HFHEB provides approved applicants with a no interest loan and provides a monthly mortgage that, including taxes and insurance, does not exceed more than 30% of their gross monthly income.
Habitat homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers and staff. From their time of approval into the homeownership program to the completion of their homes partner families dedicate 250 “sweat equity” hours on their own or others houses, providing meals for volunteers, and so much more.
We believe that in clean, decent, stable housing, families can provide stability for their children; a family’s sense of dignity and pride grow; health, physical safety, and security improve; and educational and job prospects increase. Habitat looks forward to continue to provide strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter to Sheridan County families in need of a decent place to call home.
