If you think you may be eligible for the Habitat program, and want to apply, you must register for one application session where we will provide information on the Habitat program, answer questions, and help you fill out an application. If you cannot attend a regularly scheduled session (see below), call to schedule an appointment that fits your schedule. Call 417-829-4001, ext 105 to register or schedule an appointment.
