Habitat for Humanity of Collin County wants families in need of decent, affordable housing to become home owners. Families can apply via a pre-approval process and our Family Selection Committee will select homeowners based on three criteria: 1) The applicant’s level of need, 2) Their willingness to partner with us (Habitat) and 3) Their ability to repay a mortgage through an affordable payment plan.

Habitat for Humanity of Collin County is transforming a 2.75-acre strip of land into a 35-unit, affordable housing, town-home community. Cotton Groves will be an eco-friendly, sustainable development and will be the first to utilize re-purposed shipping containers for an entire neighborhood. We have partnered with a team of professionals at the JDL Group to bring this project into fruition.
