Homeownership

We believe all people deserve, at least, a simple and decent place in which to live and grow into all that God intends for them to be. Habitat’s goal is to eliminate poverty and substandard housing worldwide.

We serve Benton, Carroll, Fountain, Tippecanoe, Warren and White Counties in Indiana.

We do more than help families purchase a new home; we help families change their lives in a way that builds their future. By using donated materials, volunteer labor, and professional services, Habitat for Humanity of Lafayette builds and rehabilitates high-quality homes with the help of the sweat equity of our future homeowners and our many partners.
