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. Volunteers in Bloomington and Monroe County volunteer on our build sites, in our office, and at Habitat ReStore.

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."

Our mission is to eliminate poverty by building simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with families in need. Habitat homeowners pay an interest-free mortgage and invest 250 hours of sweat equity, or volunteer time. Volunteer labor from  Bloomington and Monroe County plus donations from individuals and organizations fund the construction and homeowner mortgage payments help sponsor future houses. Join us and volunteer or donate today.
