welcome home

7 new Habitat homeowners!

We celebrated seven home dedications — five in Fort Wayne and two in Huntington. Between these seven families, 20 children have already been impacted by affordable homeownership. A bedroom of their own, a yard to play in, and an address that won’t change because increased rent is no longer an issue for mom and/or dad. Thank you to all of our supporters — you are impacting the lives of Habitat families for generations to come.

  • “Habitat takes families’ dreams and makes them a reality. Home security and a home for our kids to grow up in is truly special, thank you all.”

Build Season Kickoff

Jeremy speaking at press conference

We kicked off our 2024-25 season on April 24th and announced we will serve a record 26 Habitat families. Our press conference was held in Renaissance Pointe where we now have a mix of completed homes, nearly finished homes, and newly poured concrete slabs.

Six homes this season will be built through partnerships with other local homebuilders making it possible for us to increase the impact for local families waiting for affordable homeownership opportunities.

Thank you to Katie, future Habitat homeowner, for sharing her story and the excitement she and her daughter feel for what this next year will bring. Thank you Brotherhood Mutual volunteers for building and raising the first walls of a home on Oliver Street.

Annual Fundraiser

Vincent and Gentile interviewed with family

10th home funded at ReStore Your Passion 2024

Our annual ReStore Your Passion event was full of fun, food, and fundraising to combat the affordable housing crisis in our community. We “oohed and ahhed” at each refurbished Goddess Contractor piece, enjoyed local eats, and heard from new Habitat homeowners Vincent and Gentile as they shared how their Habitat home has changed their family’s life.

Thank you to everyone who made this year’s fundraiser a success!
