Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Announces New Habitat Home Groundbreaking Event

Huntingburg — Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County (HFHDC) will be breaking ground on its nineteenth home in Dubois County. 

Join them at 4 PM on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at 205 N Walnut Street in Huntingburg. This event will allow the community to learn about what this new home means to the future Habitat Homeowners, Eddie and Rebecca, hear from special guests and volunteers, and learn more about homeownership through HFHDC. This event will be streamed live on the Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Facebook page at facebook.com/DuboisHabitat as well.

HFHDC has a mission of providing a “hand up” to people in the community to acquire and own decent and affordable housing, both through new home builds and home repairs. Homeowners contribute over 300 hours of their own time building their home, participating in financial education courses, and volunteering in the community. Homeowners also pay back an affordable mortgage on their homes, which goes towards future homes.

The community can also be part of this important work by partnering with Dubois Habitat on their “Building Homes, Building Community” Campaign. Contributions will be themed around sponsorship of a wooden board to be used during construction. Sponsors will be able to give signatures, messages, logos, etc. on their own board that is used in the upcoming home build. 100% of the $100,000 goal will fund construction and affordable housing for Dubois families in Dubois County, meaning local support for local impact.
