2 Homes in 2023

Huntington County

We’re thrilled to be back in Huntington county this year! We’ll be building two affordable homes this season in Huntington, Indiana. Our homes this year will be built on Columbia Street and Beard Street for two hardworking Habitat Partner Families from Huntington County.


Meet Shiann + Derek

Shiann and Derek are parents to two energetic children and currently live in a home with other family members where they share one bathroom between six people. 

As someone who doesn’t typically push herself out of her comfort zone, Shiann is so thankful and proud that she applied for the Habitat program. Not only will their new home give them more space to spread out as a family, but it will also create equity and increase their financial security.

To our Huntington family: “We’re inspired by all of you for devoting your time, energy, and money to something so selfless. Thank you for making this opportunity possible for me and my family; we feel so blessed. I’m so excited to meet and work with you soon!”
