About Home Savers

Our volunteers make urgent repairs and accessibility improvements for low-income homeowners in Delaware County. We help about 50 homeowners every year, homeowners who have been living without heat, have their sewer backing up, or can’t get out of the house without falling.

Mission Statement

Home Savers makes urgent repairs and accessibility improvements for low-income homeowners in Delaware County.

Vision Statement

We believe that every home should be safe, warm and dry; being accessible to its residents, with dependable heating, plumbing and a water-tight roof.

Our Community Partners

PathStone Housing, ecoREHAB, Greater Muncie, Indiana Habitat for Humanity and Home Savers have a Memorandum of Understanding.

The responsibility of Home Savers is to assist in home repairs which are outside the scope of work of Habitat. Each organization agrees to work cooperatively to identify and serve program participants.

Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County provides funding through a grant.

United Way of Delaware County provides funding through a grant for health.

Elderly and disabled homeowners need to easily enter and exit their homes. Our volunteers build wheel chair ramps, porches with railings and steps.
