Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne

About This Organization

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.
