AmericaCorps Helps Habitat
In November 2017 AmericaCorps volunteers will be in Tahlequah helping TAHFH with Critical Repair Projects. Young people, ages 18-24, from all over the United States sign up to serve as volunteers with AmericaCorps for one year. Through a grant awarded to TAHFH, we welcome AmericaCorps workers who will complete several projects benefiting the community through partnerships with United Methodist Children's Home, American Indian Resource Center, Tahlequah Area Homeless Coalition Day Center, and CARE Food Pantry.

Note of Thanks to Bike & Build
TAHFH would like to thank Bike & Build for providing a $4,100 grant to help build House #24. Bike & Build is a nonprofit organization that works to provide affordable housing and empowers young adults for a lifetime of service and civic engagement. In addition to providing grants, each year a group of participants bike across the country, stopping in various cities and towns where they temporarily trade their bikes for hammers and nails to help local housing organizations build affordable houses for those in need. Thank you, Bike & Build, for helping Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity fulfill its mission!
Habitat Taking Applications for Home Loans
Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for new homeowner partners. Homeowners are selected based on three criteria: the applicant’s level of need; their willingness to partner with Habitat; and their ability to repay a mortgage through an affordable payment plan. Potential homeowners must meet income guidelines, be a US Citizen or Legal Resident, have credit of 640 or better and not be a registered sex offender. Homes must be built in Cherokee County. In collaboration with the USDA, TAHFH helps potential homeowners apply for an affordable, low-interest mortgage through the USDA’s Rural Development program. Habitat’s homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners to help build their own homes. No profit is charged for building the house. Applications can be picked up at the TAHFH Office at 816 S. College Ave. on the corner of College Ave. and First St. Assistance is available for those needing help with the application process. For additional information, call 918.453.1332 (Monday-Thursday).
