Starting the Process

Lawrence Habitat for Humanity Family Selection Committee holds public meetings to explain our program and requirements prior to accepting applications. 

If you would like to receive an invitation, please e-mail with your name, mailing address, and phone number with “homeownership interest” in the subject line OR call the Habitat office at 785-832-0777.

Attendance at this meeting is expected of all applicants. However, if attendance is not possible because of circumstances beyond your control, please contact Family Selection or call the main office at (785) 832-0777 for the necessary information and application forms.

You will have approximately two weeks to gather the required information and complete the application form. Application information is kept strictly confidential. Applicants who meet our income guidelines and pass reference checks and a credit history review will be interviewed in their homes by members of the Family Selection Committee. The selection process takes about three months.

Families who applied in the past but were not selected are invited to apply again.

For upcoming application dates or for any other questions, please contact Family Selection at or call (785)832-0777.
