An actual foundation stabilized home beats a trailer every time. There are quite a few trailer parks in Saint Charles Country and I believe in St. Peters. Wouldn't it be better for the trailer park dwellers to live in a structure that's substantially safer in bad weather?

I can remember reports of shoddy construction of new homes in Saint Charles County (in some cases entire developments). The homes built by habitat for humanity consistently win awards for the quality of materials and construction. Funny, when the greed factor is removed and charity from heart takes over how a buildings quality soars.

Someone please tell me were a well built home is not exponentially more valuable than a trailer.

Maybe they should build some of these homes where people can actually afford to live that need them like N.county or S. City???

So you are saying people in Saint Peters cannot afford a home that's basically free? The people in the trailer parks actually prefer flimsy, dangerous accomodations? Surly you jest?

People who require free housing belong in neighborhoods more desirable to their own economic status "N.City,N.County, S.city. etc... They do not belong in neighborhoods well beyond their own economic status.....Build them a habitat in their own enviroment!


Old Saint Peters must have some halo of prosperity over it? No one in Saint Peters has lost their good paying job, run up their credit to the limit and then had their home forclosed? It must be nice to have every business open and zero unemployment.

Hum, I guess there really are people that would rather live in squalor than in a place they can call home.

There sure are a bunch of people contributing incoherent replies about this news topic from Irvine, Texas.

People are hurting all over and Saint Peters is no exception. These homes will be put to very good use by our fellow Americans that have lost their jobs.

Uh Oh, I sense Irvine Texas may have moved to the United States. You must have a really big house. The issues at hand are a good number of people do not have a job to get that will sustain their current lifestyle the other is the atrocious living conditions others are currently living in.

These homeowners must - pass a backround check, have worked for a least a year- have a good job history, lived in the area for at least a year, have decent credit (just like any other home), bank accounts, pay a year insurance upfront, pay taxes every month with their payment, closing costs like everyone else, have their rent history ran,have a 30 year mortgage, it will go on your credit if you default in payment and you will be foreclosed on - so far out of 50 somthing houses that were built in St.Charles county - there has only been one foreclosure - can you say that about your so-called high class neighborhoods, and actually work on their home for 350 hours can you say you did that with your home (lazy).If they dont pass any of those then you dont have a chance. You people amaze me who dont actually know what the program is about and are jealous that you cant get a no-interest loan.

And another thing, Habiat homeowners make too much money for assisted housing. Dont you think it would be much easier for them to leave on section 8 or Necac but they actually work for a living and make more then the welfare standards!!!

Just admit the truth all you pepole really want to do is shove diversity straight down the throat of every man ,woman, and child. Take a proud, peaceful, suburb filled with joy and prosperity and turn it in to a sheet hole of a run down society filled with a-holes like yourself! Rampant Crime , Violence, drugs, gangs, and discusting feces is all you people thrive on as long as its not in your back yard! bottom feeders!

Who pays the extremely high St. Peters property tax and insurance on these homes?

Sounds like another liberal social experiment. Have they built in Habitat homes in Ladue yet?

Like I said before. Tell that to a hard working citizen of Saint Peters that just lost their home to foreclosure. Ninety nine pecent of the people in that circumstance would jump at the chance to keep their children in the same school district.

I would be inclined to agree if I actually saw some proof that it truly was hard working so called people who were reaping the benefits of this government pork funded project. As it stands I am a skeptic and believe no good will ever come from government handouts! I was young once, I know what it is like to struggle, I managed on my own without help from any government handout, and still bought a new home at the age of 23. It's called hard work , willing to go the distance, working to jobs , side work on top of that whatever it takes. "Sacrifice" it makes you appreciate what you earn and accomplish on your own as an American! America was not built by people getting government handouts, thats why this country is in the shape it's in no one wants to be held accountable and no one wants to work or sweat for anything. Makes me sick!

I'm not for just giving stuff away either. My comments are framed around the fact there's been a very large number of hard working people that have lost their homes not because of them being Slackers but because they lost their good paying job due to the economic downturn, rippoff mortages, outragous credit card debt and the like.

Think about the number of companies that folded or relocated jobs overseas. Great family sustainable jobs vanishing not by the fault of the worker. These are the people that can take advantage of the homes discussed here.

Lazy losers don't deserve something like these homes offer. A person that has a job in their lap and does not take it, nope, not in my formula.
