About Us

Welcome to Indiana University's Habitat for Humanity website. Our chapter is dedicated to helping the Bloomington community by providing volunteers on build sites, at the local ReStore, organizing various fundraising events throughout the year, and educating students and advocating for Habitat's mission.

Monroe Citizens

Live in poverty. In Monroe County, Indiana, a person earning minimum wage must work 72 hours every week of the year to afford a two-bedroom apartment. This is largely due to the high demand for housing IU students.

IU Chapter Founded

Since then has been working to create adequate housing and to help educate the IU community about substandard housing and our impact in Monroe County. The IU Chapter is comprised of dozens of students ranging from freshman to seniors with a variety of different backgrounds and experiences with Habitat.

Years Since

We have co-sponsored a house with Monroe County Habitat for Humanity. This takes another family off of the very long wait list for a home, and directly involves our chapter on the build site!
