DANBURY, Conn. – Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is holding mandatory information sessions next week to explain its homeowner application process.

Families interested in becoming a Habitat homeowner must attend one of these sessions:
- Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church, 7 Whittlesey Ave., New Milford
- Saturday, Nov. 1 at 1 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church, 7 Whittlesey Ave., New Milford

"We are looking for families who qualify to buy a Habitat home. There are three main qualifications: You must live or work in in our 15 town affiliate area; have a job with a minimum family income in the $45,000 to $50,000 range; and have demonstrated a need for simple, decent and affordable housing," said Housatonic Habitat Executive Director Fran Norman. "We are offering a hand up, not a hand out."
Housatonic Habitat has built 27 homes in the area since it was founded in 1991.
"People who are applying to see if they qualify to purchase a house from Housatonic Habitat for Humanity must show a need for better housing and be able to make monthly mortgage payments," said Family Selection Chair Ernest Lehman. " Habitat would like to accept everyone who qualifies, but unfortunately we can only afford to build a certain number of houses."
