Equal Housing OpportunitySince its founding in 1981, Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West (Habitat STW) has worked to address the need of affordable housing by building and selling 282 new homes to partnering low income families in west St. Tammany Parish. Specifically, Habitat STW serves homebuyers with incomes between 30 and 80% of the local Area Median Income (AMI), which currently translates to roughly $21,100 to $56,300 per year for a family of four. Families with incomes above Habitat’s service range, at or below AMI, though, still find access to quality, local affordable housing scarce. Habitat STW builds on average 10 homes per year.

Habitat STW is an equal-opportunity housing lender, and does not consider applicant race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation or sources of income when selecting future homeowners for the Homeownership Program.The dedication of everyone involved, from homeowner, to staff, to volunteers, makes it all happen.
