Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads (Habitat SHR) is committed, through its program of a Hand-up; not a Hand-out, to providing all families with an opportunity to share in the American Dream of home ownership – especially local Veterans. 


Many of these families are unable to obtain conventional home financing as they cannot afford the costs associated with traditional home ownership mortgages.


Habitat SHR addresses this need by selling low cost housing with affordable mortgage payments to low/ moderately-low income families. 


Through our Habitat for Heroes program, HabitatSHR is constantly seeking a qualified veteran (anyone who has been honorably discharged from military service) family to work together toward the goal of home ownership.
We accept applications for this program year round.


There is a $25 application fee for a single applicant, or a $35 fee if you have a co-applicant.

You can choose to pay using ACH bank transfer (you will need your bank's routing number and your bank account number) or PayPal to use a credit card. Click on the links below the link to the application to be taken to these fee processing services. 

Once you have completed the application and paid your application fee you will need to email readable copies of the following documents to

  1. Your paystubs for the last 60 days for applicant and co-applicant

  2. Evidence of other monthly income for the household (SSI, child support, etc.)

  3. Your current rental lease and any related housing voucher

Please note: We will not process your application until we have received payment of the application fee and copies of the above listed documents.
