Comal County Habitat for Humanity offers them the opportunity to buy an affordable home at lower mortgage rates with zero interest. HYP is committed to this goal and to the professional development of New Braunfels' leaders. HYP helps its members develop and improve their leadership skills through a variety of social, service, and educational opportunities.
