All sweat equity hours must be completed prior to moving into the home. A Partner Family having one adult as the head of the household must earn a total of 250 sweat equity hours. A Partner Family having two adults in the household must complete a total of 350 sweat equity hours. Required classes and optional classes will be conducted or arranged by Habitat throughout the year, allowing Family Partners to learn and also earn sweat equity.
