Each family we serve has a story, a dream, and an opportunity to build a better future for their families, thanks to our supporters and volunteers. Thank you Hezekiah, Jennifer and Betty for sharing your stories with us.
Muncie Habitat for Humanity serves low-income families in Delaware County with opportunities for homeownership (new and rehab homes) and improved housing solutions (home repairs).
Selected families pay 30% or less of their income on housing costs – including their insurance, taxes, and no-interest, non-profit mortgage payment. Partner families pay a down payment, attend education courses, put in sweat equity hours, and commit to an interest free mortgage. Habitat’s model provides a ‘hand up, not a handout’.
In 2021 we plan on serving 31 local families with our home repair and housing programs. Currently however, Muncie Habitat is facing unprecedented cost increases on our build sites – almost 20 percent across the board. We have been stretched this last year, with a limited number of volunteers, significant price increases, and the need now, more than ever, to give deserving people the opportunity to realize the security of a safe home, while their health and even their jobs continue to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
Join us today, in working towards a community where everyone has a safe, decent, affordable place to live!
