Programs & Services

Habitat for Humanity offers a wide range of programs and services, including:

  • 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 about home ownership, please visit the above "Home Ownership" page link.

  • Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for Critical Home Repairs. Applicants must be homeowners in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. Examples include roofing, guttering, HVAC repair or replacement, wheelchair ramps and other types of repairs.

    Applications are for owner-occupied homes that are low or very low income. If approved, applicants will be qualified for an interest-free home loan with oversight by Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity. The loan will be repaid over a specified period of time. Interested persons are asked to contact TAHFH Director, Linda Cheatham, at 918.453.1332 or click on the "Critical Home Repairs" heading above and complete the linked form.
