National New Homeowners Day was created to celebrate new homeowners who have achieved their dream of owning their own homes. Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County has a special affection for this day. We know firsthand the joy and excitement new homeowners feel after purchasing an affordable home, and we are always proud when we can be part of that. If you’re dreaming of joining the more than six million Americans who purchased a home last year, but don’t feel that it is within reach, you’ve come to the right place! Visit the Am I Eligible section of our website to learn if you qualify to purchase a Habitat for Humanity affordable home. If you do not qualify, look into our Homeward Bound program, which offers homebuying education for families and individuals who do not currently qualify for our Homeownership Program and want to work towards that goal. Happy Homehunting!
