Habitat for Humanity to hold orientation

A new-family orientation for those interested in applying for a Habitat for Humanity house is set for 6:30 p.m. Monday at M.C. Riley Elementary School, 200 Burnt Church Road, Bluffton.

The meeting is open to those who live or work in Beaufort or Jasper counties.

To qualify for a Habitat home, applicants must go through a rigorous approval process, attend family workshops on preparing for home ownership and agree to provide "sweat equity" for their own home and other Habitat homes, according to a news release.
