HAND is an excellent organization and resource for our community. The number I chose represent the age of my oldest kiddos

Our house number in Fishers ends in 17! As young professionals, my husband and I struggled to find a home in the area in our price range and hope that with the work of HAND and other partners housing becomes more affordable and attainable for all.

Housing is critical for happiness and on a basic level, security. So many of us take it for granted and are blessed with never having to worry about it.

55 is my age!

Helping HAND means a lot to my daughter Brittany and she is determined to raise $10,000 by October 6th! I support my daughter and most definitely believe in affordable and safe housing for all. My husband and I were fortunate in that we were able to live and raise our daughters in his family's farm home for the first 23 years of our marriage. We were blessed in that we were able to build our own home in 2004 where we have lived the past 15 years. So for our 38 years of marriage (23+15) in the two homes on the same site, I chose to donate $38. Come on Hamilton County, support HAND in raising their $10,000!

Tiday, August 21, is my son's 21st birthday. My family is so blessed that we have had safe housing for his entire life. Everyone deserves to have access to safe and affordable housing!!

I’m giving $33 because it wasn’t until age 33 that I bought a house for the first time (with my wife) and the search to find a home in our price range was very difficult. Moderately priced homes sell very quickly in Hamilton County and I know there are many people out there much worse off than me financially who are having a very difficult time finding a home they can afford. We need a variety of housing options in order to help support our businesses who are looking for workers who live nearby.

My wife and I are donating $27 because we have been fortunate enough to be homeowners for 18 years. We've owned 3 different homes during that time, had our three kids, and three pets. (18+3+3+3=27)

I chose to give $53 because that is the number of years I have lived in Noblesville. From growing up in an old rental farmhouse, to a house trailer, to my family home, to my current home, I have always loved my community and all that it represents. Affordable housing is a topic that is important in my work with Family Promise of Hamilton County where we empower families experiencing homelessness to find safe and affordable housing. HAND is a vital partner in our work with families!

No real magic behind the number I chose as it's what we had to spare. I just want to give back, so that others have can a comfortable, happy home.

I chose 6 because it is the number of years I have lived in my home. HAND is about more than housing, it’s about building homes and community! Thank you for your support of HAND and all their wonderful work for our community!

I donated $82.89 today to honor the birthday of 2 of the most important people in my life -- my son Steve & his wife Kristen. Their birthdays are August 2 & August 9. They are a reminder to me of how important it is to have a safe, affordable place to live.

I have had the pleasure of working for HAND, Inc. for the past 10 months. I am so very glad to work for an organization that is so passionate about providing affordable, safe clean housing for all! The affordable housing and Home Repair Program are the most wonderful initiative Hamilton Count could have. I am proud to be part of such an impactful organization.

Being an affordable housing advocate in Hamilton County may be one of the biggest challenges in the state. I want to do all I can to help. My football jersey number was 51 in high school and college. Thus 102

Cindy Benedict said:

I picked 14 because I'm beginning my 14th year living in Hamilton County -- the longest I've ever lived in the same house! I'm supporting HAND, Inc. and #Housing4All because I believe that diverse communities are strong communities where I want to live.

76 is the total of all of the ages in my household. We feel blessed that our family can all be under one roof with the safety and security to thrive. We know not everyone gets this benefit in life and appreciate that HAND is trying to change that with their Housing 4 All campaign!

I gave $175 because I firmly believe everyone deserves a safe affordable home that is a haven! The number represents my wish that HAND reaches 175% +++ of its goal and I support its mission 175%+++

We bought our first home in Fishers in '13 and our second home in Noblesville in '18. 13+18 = 31. In the words of my favorite farm girl from Kansas, there's no place like home!

I have been a homeowner in Noblesville for 13 years. I was very lucky to find a home that I could afford, and mine required a ton of sweat-equity! I think it's vital that our communities make an effort to provide safe, healthy, affordable housing for everyone and that's why I'm supporting this cause!
