Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry uniting volunteers and local investors with qualified families to build simple, affordable homes in Allen and Huntington counties. Since completing its first home in 1987, Habitat of Greater Fort Wayne has served more than 200 families in need with safe, stable and affordable homeownership and repairs.Habitat seeks to promote dignity and hope to families served in order to meet needs in a sustainable and transformational way. Every family who partners with Habitat must complete 400 hours of sweat equity, working on the construction site and at the Habitat ReStore, and successfully pass HomeWorks home buyer education and financial literacy classes.Future homeowners also make a $500 down payment and will repay an interest-free 30-year mortgage back to Habitat. Thanks in part to partner family sweat equity and volunteer labor, the cost of a standard three-bedroom home is kept affordable, with typical monthly mortgage payments around $500 including taxes and insurance. The revolving fund created by mortgage payments received allows Habitat to reinvest into the community through additional housing opportunities, creating a lasting and sustainable investment for years to come.

Meet the Homeowner:

Michelle Clayton’s family has grown since she joined Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program in Spring 2014. 
She has many brothers and sisters she’s worked with through the classes, at the ReStore and on the construction site. And she expects to meet more when she starts building her home this summer. 
“It is an extended family,” Michelle says of all the volunteers, future neighbors and Habitat team members who have come alongside her and her children as they worked to become homeowners. “It’s added support.”
She is open about the journey that brought her to Habitat. And she knows how important her large support system has been and will continue to be as she becomes a homeowner for the first time. 
Michelle struggled with drug and alcohol addictions before getting sober 10 years ago. Her family even ended up homeless a few times. But with the support and relationships she built with case workers and now coworkers at The Rescue Mission; her church family at Level 13; and her Habitat family, she has been successful in overcoming those challenges and the instability they created for her family.
The biggest change she said she’s looking forward to when she gets the keys to her new home this year is the “freedom of having something that is my own.” 
“We’ve rented continually or even couch-surfed,” Michelle said. “It’s never been ours. We’re excited to make this home our own.”
