Community Report

2022 Community Report

In our 35th year, we reflected on the thousands of Central Indiana residents who have responded to the call to love their neighbors and proved that the heartbeat of our work truly is bringing people together. We have provided 1,624 housing solutions in Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks and Marion counties, as well as internationally through our partnerships with Habitat for Humanity affiliates abroad.

While we enjoyed looking back, we also set a new three-year strategic plan to press forward and increase our impact. We set an historic goal to provide 300 housing solutions by the end of 2024: the most solutions ever in a three-year span.

2020 Community Report

At Greater Indy Habitat, hope was at the center in 2020. Because of that, the work went on – differently, but with no less energy and enthusiasm. Even when when we couldn’t work shoulder-to-shoulder, the community still generously participated.

We have an unspoken culture of adhering to a “Yes, and…” approach to the challenges and circumstances that we face when advancing our mission. 2020 called for many “Yes, and…” approaches: Yes, the pandemic had a big impact on our work in 2020. And…through the generosity of our sponsors, donors and volunteers, we were still able to build homes, communities and, most of all, hope.
