Hilton Head Regional Habitat for Humanity will conduct a new-family orientation at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at M.C. Riley Elementary School in Bluffton for people who live or work in Beaufort or Jasper counties and are interested in learning how to apply for a Habitat house. Habitat applicants must go through a rigorous approval process, attend family workshops on preparing for homeownership and agree to provide "sweat equity," not only on the construction of their home but on homes for others, according to a Habitat news release. Applications will be available at the orientation. Details: 843-757-5864.
