Habitat for Humanity has affiliates that share the same mission all over the United States and the world, but our mission is right here in Kosciusko County. We build in the county for local families, use local volunteers and contractors, and even raise our money locally. When you give to our affiliate, you know your support is going to help local families make the jump the homeownership. Let’s build together!
