homeownership

Habitat for Humanity of Boone County believes that all hard-working individuals and families should have access to the benefits and stability of homeownership. In this belief, we are committed to partnering with families to build simple, decent, and affordable housing.

The low cost of our homes is made possible by the exceptional support of our community. Building costs remain low thanks to impressive donations and generous volunteerism. These factors make it possible to sell our homes to accepted families with a 0% interest loan and at no profit.

meet our partner families

Our 2022 Community of Build Applicant Homeowner is Andrea,  a single mom of three children who grew up in Zionsville.  Her children are Hannah, age 24, who is getting married this year,  Cayden age 16 who plays basketball all year round, and her special needs son Daniel, who lives at home and has a great love for cooking.  After her divorce, she managed to keep her kids in the same school district they grew custom to and she began working on her college degree.  Once she graduated, she started working on building her own bookkeeping business, working with her mom doing taxes, and working for a consulting firm to learn many different areas of accounting.  Having a successful career has been a priority for her so that she can afford to give her children the forever home they deserve!
