2016 Backyard BBQ

2016 Backyard BBQ

About This Event

Enjoy a casual atmosphere hosted in our backyard in Fuller's Landing. Show up in casual attire ready for a relaxing evening with us. We'll put up a big tent (this is a rain or shine event), fire up the smokers, turn on the music and show you just what this new community affords our homeowners - a safe, stable place to call home.

While we keep it laid back, we will spend a little time showing you what an impact your ongoing support of affordable homeownership has on families and include you in the one-of-a-kind Habitat experience as we hand over the keys to the newest homeowner.

Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity

Event to Support Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity

Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry uniting volunteers and local investors with qualified families to build simple, affordable homes in Allen County. Established locally in 1986, Habitat completed its first home in 1987 and has since built more than 180 safe, stable and sustainable homes for families in need. 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 300 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.
