Almost Home

Almost Home is a program designed to help potential future applicants prepare for the next phase in their housing journey. Ready to apply for affordable homeownership? Not quite ready but hoping to place yourself on better financial footing?

Almost Home provides resources that improve understanding of banking, credit, homeownership, and the ins and outs of the application process. As an added bonus for attendees who complete this program and end up becoming a Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity homeowner within three years, the hours spent on Almost Home count toward your sweat equity hours.
