About Habitat for Humanity of the Kokomo Community 

We are part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action. Habitat for Humanity of the Kokomo Community is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes, by advocating for fair and just housing policies, and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

Habitat for Humanity of the Kokomo Community was founded in 1988 on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. All of the $60,000 necessary to build a home (approx. $35,000 for a rehab) must be raised locally. And 10% of donations are sent to build in Costa Rica. Invest in our mission today!

All are welcome 

Christianity is our center not our border. Habitat for Humanity of the Kokomo Community has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
