At Habitat for Humanity of Grant County, we envision a Grant County where every neighborhood is proud and we are proud of every neighborhood. To move us closer to this vision, we need to understand how homeownership fits into the picture of the Grant County we want to build.
With the declining rates of homeownership, revitalizing our neighborhoods and increasing access to homeownership is more important than ever in bringing back lost purchasing power, tax base, and associated neighborhood stability.
More than a roof, homeownership is a catalyst for transforming our communities, building financial stability for generations, and priming the neighborhood for economic development. As part of our expanded mission of serving the many— building homeowner equity and asset wealth, addressing the affordable housing gap, strengthening neighborhoods and improving health and education for children and families.
Habitat for Humanity of Grant County was formed in July 1993. As of July 1, 2020 HFH has served 54 working families in Grant County, Indiana. Building on donated land, with donated funds and constructed with volunteer labor, our mission is to provide affordable housing opportunities to those in need.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people
together to build homes, communities and hope.

A world where evryone has a decent place to live
Habitat for Humanity of Grant County does not give away homes. Instead, we partner with hardworking families in our community to provide a path to homeownership. Through home sponsorships, individual donations, and volunteer work, we are able to build safe, quality, and beautiful homes and to offer affordable, no-to-low interest mortgages to families who complete our homeownership program. Habitat home-buyers invest in their home through "sweat equity": working side-by-side with sponsors and volunteers on home builds, doing volunteer work, and completing an intensive series of courses including credit management, individualized debt counseling, money management, basic home repair, mortgages and lending process, escrow and taxes, and more.

Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must (i) adhere to or convert to a particular faith or (ii) listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
