A Means to Self-Sufficiency
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis (HFHGI) is an ecumenical Christian ministry that provides low-income individuals and families the life-changing opportunity to purchase and own simple, quality, affordable homes. Besides housing, research shows that our homeownership program leads to benefits beyond housing for the homeowners, including improved mental health, a decreased reliance on social services, and improved academic achievement for those with children.
Habitat homes are affordable thanks our ability to leverage volunteerism, donations, and contributions from the community at large. Selected Habitat homeowners pay a modest down payment, invest up to 450 hours of “Sweat Equity” in the construction of their home and are responsible for monthly mortgage payments and home maintenance. Through the homeownership education program and financial counseling, Habitat Homeowners are given the tools to be successful in this endeavor.
Discover if Habitat homeownership is right for you by attending a monthly information session. Habitat Homeowners must meet our qualifications. If you are interested in becoming a homeowner, please visit our How to Qualify page for more information on our qualifications.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis provides equal housing opportunities for all, and ensures fair and equal access to its programs and services regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, familial status, disability, marital status, ancestry, sexual orientation, source of income, or other characteristics protected by law.
