Indiana State University sponsored the building of the 51st Habitat House in Terre Haute. In addition to raising money for the construction, more than 200 ISU students, faculty and staff donated time to work on the house.

The project is an outgrowth of the Human Rights Day focus on Poverty, Hunger, and Homelessness. In addition to the Human Rights Day Committee, the Center for Public Service and Community Engagement, the College of Technology, the Office of Student Activities and Organizations, the Support Staff Council, the Office of Alumni Affairs and Facilities Management assisted with the project.

The walls of the home were framed in the ISU Construction Technology Lab, under supervision of Bruce Dallman, associate dean of the College of Technology.
