Hilliard Adopt a House

Provide funding, leadership and volunteers to facilitate the construction of affordable housing for economically disadvantaged families in partnership with established nonprofit housing organizations.

Hilliard Adopt-A-House is a non-profit, 501(c)3 public charity located in the northwest suburbs of the Greater Columbus, Ohio area. Our mission is to bring affordable housing to economically disadvantaged families, most commonly in partnership with Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio and with Habitat for Humanity of Delaware & Union Counties. Affiliated churches are from greater Columbus communities.

The following churches participate in this critical ministry with their financial support and their faithful volunteers:

  • Amlin United Methodist Church, Dublin, Ohio
  • Indian Run United Methodist Church, Dublin, Ohio
  • King Avenue United Methodist Church, Columbus, Ohio
  • Linworth United Methodist Church, Columbus, Ohio
  • St. Brendan The Navigator Catholic Church, Hilliard, Ohio
  • St. James Lutheran Church, Hilliard, Ohio

As a public charity we also receive financial and volunteer support from other organizations and individuals. Most of this support comes from the personal or professional relationships of constituents and members of these six churches, although Hilliard Adopt-A-House does solicit financial support from other sources as well.
