Our homeowner for the Community/Faith Build is Amanda. She is a single mom of a 6 year old daughter. She currently lives with her mother as she couldn't find affordable housing in the area. Amanda is a very hard working vet tech and adores her animals. She has already finished her sweat equity hours required by HFHBC so she is ready to go! She is SO excited of fulfilling her dream of home ownership and a place she and her daughter can call their forever home!
Our 2020 Women Build homeowner is Jacklynn, a single mom with a 5 year old son. She works as a Qualified Medication Aide at a long-term care facility in Lebanon. Jacklynn is also proudly part of the Indiana National Guard Reserves. She loves spending time with her son, movie marathons and has a keen interest in marine biology. She is excited to be joining the HFHBC Family after dreaming of an affordable, long-term and secure home!

Applications are available at the monthly orientation meetings, by contacting the Habitat office at 765-483-5134, or downloading the application below.
Our Family Selection Committee will then review your application and hold a home interview to determine your status for home ownership. Once approved you will be asked to make modest deposit toward your home.
earn sweat equity
Sweat equity is credit you are given for doing Habitat-related work and attending classes.
Each person on the mortgage will be required to complete a minimum of 200 hours of sweat equity. Most sweat equity hours are earned by working at construction sites. Additional hours can be earned by volunteering time at a local nonprofit organization.
