Home Ownership

Learn how to be a Habitat Partner Family and own your own home!  The average rent in Madison County, Indiana is 40-50% of a family's income.  Habitat's goal is to build a home that has a monthly mortgage payment around 30% of a family's income so that they can have a nice home and the funds needed to thrive in today's economy.

Donating to Habitat enables us to provide the funds and education needed to help a family own their own home.  Dollar for dollar financial donations go the furthest, however, we also have a ReSale store where people can donate items they no longer need that can be sold to raise funds for Habitat or where people can purchase items for their own home.

Volunteers are the foundation upon which each home is built.  You don't need experience in construction, just a heart to help in your toolbox.  Our volunteers help in a variety of ways: from bringing meals to building crews, serving on committees, praying for our Partner Families, staffing our ReSale Store, and working at the build sites.

Building up a Community

Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with those who cannot afford to buy a home in a traditional way.  Home ownership provides consistency in living conditions, lower housing costs, and a greater sense of community than renting for families.


It's not just one home built for one family at a time, it is ONE community loving others and the result is a difference to each Habitat Partner family and those they touch.
