About Habitat for Humanity of Hamilton County
Habitat for Humanity Hamilton County is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that is dedicated to working in partnership with low-income families in Hamilton County under the conviction that every person should have a safe, decent, and affordable place to live in safety and dignity. Habitat homeowners pay interest-free, zero-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.
Why we do what we do
In Hamilton County, Indiana, where nearly 20% of the county's households are low to moderately-low income levels and greater than 20,000 households experience housing cost burdens, those families who pay more than 30% of their income on housing, unaffordable housing holds our community back from being a place that families can call “home."
