Habitat for Humanity
The Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show is proud to begin a new chapter in giving back to the community. We’ve selected Habitat for Humanity as our charitable partner for the 2020 show. A portion of ticket proceeds / revenue will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in an effort to build a show sponsored home for someone in the community. We are working with our show exhibitors to contribute donations of materials, labor & more! We’re excited to support this great community cause! Be sure to stop by the Habitat display at the show to learn how you can help!
About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating sub-standard housing. Since 1986, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne has built nearly 250 affordable, quality homes for families in our community. The Habitat program allows families to purchase a stable and decent home with an affordable mortgage. Proceeds from monthly payments help build more homes in Allen, Huntington and Wells counties.
Qualified families invest time in what we call Sweat Equity – by taking classes to prepare them for homeownership, working on Habitat build sites, and eventually, helping to build their very own home. We are not a custom home builder and have pre-set house designs and build locations.
