West Tallahatchie Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, and builds simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with local families in need.  Homeowner families are selected using the criteria of Need, Ability to Pay, and Willingness to Partner. Habitat volunteers build the house alongside the partner family, who is required to contribute 500 hours of “sweat equity” to the home.   Upon completion, it is sold to the homeowner at cost, with a no-interest loan over 25 years.  Currently, West Tallahatchie Habitat homes cost approximately $45,000.
