Making an Impact Since 1984
Habitat for Humanity of Evansville has been making a significant impact in the Evansville community since its establishment in 1984. Their mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. The organization firmly believes that housing plays a vital role in breaking the cycle of poverty. Habitat achieves its goals by partnering with the community, enabling low-income families in Vanderburgh and Posey counties to become homeowners.
Qualifying for a Habitat Home
Habitat launched the "100 Homes with 100 Families" campaign in 2019, with the goal of building 100 homes by 2024 and developing a transformative family support program. To qualify for homeownership, individuals or families must have an income at or below 80 percent of the area median income. They must also demonstrate a need for housing, a willingness to contribute 300 hours of sweat equity and attend homeownership classes. Additionally, they need to have the ability to pay a zero-percent APR mortgage.
