INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis woman and her young daughter have a new house to live in, thanks to Habitat for Humanity volunteers.

Jasmine and daughter moved into the house on the Indianapolis west side following a dedication ceremony.

The volunteers came from the Carrier Corporation, which has now built 22 Habitat houses in Indianapolis over the last 25-years. Carrier also donates heating and cooling equipment for the houses. The company's residential division headquarters are based in Indianapolis.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian organization which builds houses across the U.S. and world-wide in low-income areas. Owners make a down payment followed by ongoing interest-free payments, and provide some of the labor needed to build the houses.

In 2019, Habitat built or repaired 53 homes in the Greater Indianapolis area.
