Company Description:

In Monroe County, Indiana, where 1 in 5 people are living in poverty, unaffordable housing holds our community back from being a place that families can call “Home.”

Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County’s mission is to eliminate poverty housing by building simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with qualifying families. Habitat homeowners pay interest-free, no-profit mortgages, which are used to build more Habitat houses. Because houses are principally built with volunteer labor, mortgage payments are affordable for low-income partners.

Habitat qualifying families are selected based on their need for housing, ability to repay the no-interest mortgage and willingness to partner with Habitat by earning 250 hours of “sweat equity” or volunteer time. Through the work of thousands of volunteers and partner organizations, Habitat does more than build homes. We build community.
