Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County

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.

Why we do what we do

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."
