Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County is advising local residents not to miss out on their chance to own a home.

It has only one more opening for a home to be built this year, it says. Those who need affordable housing are urged to apply soon.

Homeowner families are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to partner with Habitat and their ability to pay. They purchase the homes from Habitat with affordable mortgages. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and tax-deductible donations of money, land and materials are provided by individuals, organizations, churches, foundations, and businesses.

Since 1997, Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County has built or renovated 80 houses and completed 51 Aging in Place projects throughout Douglas County.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
