How do homeowners complete their sweat equity hours?
Once selected, a Partner Family must earn up to 500 hours of “sweat equity” by attending financial management classes, home maintenance classes and other educational classes provided through our affiliate. The program is meant to be a partnership between our staff, our volunteers and our future homeowners. In addition, partner families earn sweat equity hours by working on the homes of other partner families in the program and finally on their own home. Some hours can be earned by friends and family members.
