Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane
Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane was founded in 1990 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Working with individuals and families, volunteers and dedicated supporters, we build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. We serve the Eugene/Springfield metro area and from Cottage Grove to Coburg, Walton to McKenzie Bridge, and out to Marcola and Lowell.
With our home construction program, low-income families invest in their future with a lot of hard work or “sweat equity.” Families complete a minimum of 300-500 “sweat equity” hours (depending on family configuration) prior to moving in. After the house is built with volunteers, our families purchase their home with a low-interest, no-profit loan. Their monthly mortgage payments cycle directly back into the mission of Habitat, allowing us to provide the same life-changing experience for another family. Each Partner Family receives continued support through education and mentorship.
Since our founding, Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane has built nearly 70 homes. We also offer support to our global partner affiliate in Nicaragua where we have helped build over 60 homes. We welcome people from all walks of life to partner with our program to serve families in need with generosity, humility and love.
