HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF NORTHWEST INDIANA
Habitat For Humanity of Northwest Indiana
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
Living paycheck-to-paycheck makes a traditional mortgage out of reach for most struggling, working, families. This creates a desperate living situation for a family. Housing options for a low-income family are often substandard, unsafe and not permanently reliable and takes more than half of the monthly income.
Habitat for Humanity builds a decent, affordable, energy-efficient home for a partner family. Not only do we provide strength and stability through permanent shelter, we provide the tools necessary for a family to remove themselves from the cycle of poverty. This includes performing 300 "sweat equity" hours working on the home build and learning how to be a homeowner to financial literacy classes that teach the importance of an emergency fund and checking and savings accounts. We provide a hand-up, not a hand-out for families struggling to make ends meet.
Mission statement: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

ST. JUDE HOUSE
ST. Jude House
St. Jude House mission statement:
The mission of St. Jude House is to provide compassionate, comprehensive and respectful shelter and resources to empower victims of domestic violence to break that cycle of family violence and continue on their journey to self-sufficiency and lives free of violence. St. Jude House is a catalyst in Northwest Indiana for the prevention, education and awareness of domestic violence and sexual abuse. More than food and shelter in a communal living context, we provide residential and non-residential clients and their dependent children with one-on-one advocacy and support groups.
St. Jude House, located at 12490 Marshall Street in Crown Point, is a family violence prevention center and shelter providing comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault since 1995, sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago. St. Jude House is a locally governed nonprofit providing service without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, or disability. Our physical facility is accessible to differently-abled clients. Our shelter services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, we maintain a 24-hour Crisis Line at 800-254-1286. Whether or not you have a crisis situation, we encourage calls to the 800 number to discuss possible resources or to get answers to your questions.
Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. Abuse may be physical, sexual, emotional or psychological actions or threats that influence another person.
Our case management services involve assisting clients with identifying their goals—both short and long term—and information and referrals for job training, employment, medical, housing, income support and transportation. Legal advocacy involves assisting clients to identify their legal rights and options and then helping them pursue these choices successfully. Safety planning is integral to addressing the needs of our clients and their children. Group education and individualized services provide the clients with a path to positive life change and personal healing.
St. Jude House provides educational programs to community groups, service providers, schools, churches, hospitals, law enforcement, and the legal community. We collaborate with other social service agencies. Developing community partnerships is an essential part of increasing our outreach.
