ecoREHAB of Muncie is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that emerged in 2009 from a Ball State University architecture studio designed to transform abandoned houses into sustainable homes. In our brief but energetic history, ecoREHAB has worked alongside students and community partners to rehabilitate six deteriorating structures into inviting, affordable homes for our neighbors. We also provide affordable consultation and educational outreach to promote sustainable building practices among homeowners, businesses, and communities.
Supported by an active board, ecoREHAB is committed to reinvesting in the community through collaborations with Ball State and other community partners. Together, we believe, this work promotes economic prosperity, environmental protection, and social equality—adding value to our world.
We live our mission through support of the following objectives:
Rehabilitate existing houses with green and sustainable building practices, while remaining economically competitive with more traditional quality rehabilitation methods.
Provide immersive learning experiences for Ball State University students that challenge these future industry leaders to collaborate with the city and other community partners to plan, budget, and administer sustainable projects.
Offer training, consultation, and outreach to individuals, communities, community development corporations, and businesses based on their needs. We share our approaches and lessons learned with similar programs throughout Indiana to expand sustainable living.
