What We Do:
Lakeway Area Habitat builds and repairs or renovates houses in partnership with low-income families, and then sells the houses to these partner families. Homeowners are selected based on their need for affordable housing, ability to repay a no-interest mortgage, and their willingness to partner with Lakeway Area Habitat for Humanity. Their mortgage payments help support the Habitat programs. Because our houses are financed with no interest and principally built with volunteer labor, mortgage payments are affordable for low-income families in Hamblen and Grainger Counties who otherwise would not be able to afford their own home.
Lakeway Area Habitat for Humanity has built 59 homes and completed 28 critical home repairs in Hamblen and Grainger Counties, since 1992. We are proud of each home and neighborhood that has been developed through partnerships with our Habitat homeowners, donors, and volunteers.
