Ionia Habitat Programs

A path to your safe, affordable home

Everyone deserves a decent place to live.

At Ionia Habitat we believe in a world where everyone has a safe, stable, and affordable place to live. Through our different programs we help people become homeowners, stay in their current homes through A Brush With Kindness repairs, and help ensure veterans are welcomed home with a place to call home.

For the homeownership journey, your options may include buying a home built or rehabbed directly from Ionia Habitat or working with Habitat and a banking partner to secure a low-interest loan. Read more about our traditional homeownership program and our accelerated program below.
