While Ozaukee County is one of the wealthier counties in Wisconsin, there are still many families living in substandard housing whose conditions are in severe need of improvement.
Habitat for Humanity - Ozaukee envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We provide home build and repair resources to homeowners who work in partnership with our affiliate to complete development projects through sweat equity with hardworking volunteers. After more than a decade, we have completed 10 new homes and countless neighborhood repair projects.
Our partnership with community churches, businesses and the general public has made it possible for our young chapter to build a our first one-family home in 2003. Since then, we've built a two-family home in 2006, four-plex in 2009, and another one-family home in 2012. We've also built a wheelchair-accessible garage in 2013.
These organizations and individuals have supported us in numerous ways - donating funds, labor, materials and meals for volunteers - and we couldn't be more grateful. The partnering Habitat families' sweat equity also contributes to this labor of love.
