HFH (Habitat for Humainty) of Warrick County is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. HfH of Warrick County, like all Habitat for Humanity organizations, works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
In addition to the Habitat model, this organization has been administering the self-help housing program since 2002. Through this model, families qualify for the 502 mortgage and the partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor – “sweat equity” – into building their homes and the homes of others.
