HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
About Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat impacts every area of a family’s life – health, safety, education outcomes, and financial opportunity. And the impact grows with each generation.
One third of all Wisconsinites spend over half their income on housing, making it hard to achieve financial stability. We’re working to change that.
You Can Help
Your financial support, your time and your voice will help bring independence to families in need of a decent place to live.
What We Build
Habitat houses around the world are built according to the same 3 guiding principles:
Habitat houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family's needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.
Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.
The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.
