Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Dearborn and Ohio Counties has merged with seven other area Habitat affiliates to form Habitat for Humanity
TriState of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. By merging, local Habitat organizations can consolidate operating expenses and staff, allowing chapters to focus their efforts on constructing homes and serving partner families.

Habitat for Humanity TriState OKI is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses are then sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.

Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

For information on applying for a Habitat home in Dearborn or Ohio Counties, Indiana, call the Habitat office at 812-926-2183.

The Habitat for Humanity International web site provides more detailed information on Habitat's history and mission, along with contact information for other Habitat affiliates around the world.

General Information
The excitement is building! But in Habitat for Humanity, we don't just build houses. We also build friendships, share our talents, learn new skills, and touch the lives of our partner families forever. Join us as we work together to eliminate poverty housing in Dearborn and Ohio Counties, one home at a time.

Habitat for Humanity offers the following volunteer opportunities in Dearborn and Ohio Counties. For more information, call our Volunteer Coordinator, Charlie White, at 812-438-2691.

  • Construction volunteers (all skill levels) for framing, wiring, plumbing, site clean-up, and other general building tasks. Come and lead a crew or learn a new skill, and make a new friend in the process! When a home is under construction, work sessions take place on Saturday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and lunch is usually provided. Call the office for the dates and location of Saturday construction sessions, or e-mail rivercityrick@earthlink.net for information on weekday work sessions.

  • Family advocates to mentor partner families. Assist family members with tracking their sweat equity hours and help them plan for their new home.

Habitat also needs volunteers for many other tasks. If you have time and skills you'd like to share, call our office for more information.\
