Grafton Home Build Dedication

Habitat for Humanity - Ozaukee recently hosted the dedication of our 12th home, which is the second half of a duplex built in Grafton, Wisconsin. 

 

 

Being able to dedicate this home to its deserving homeowners was an emotional experience, especially after all of their sweat equity hours, alongside our teams of volunteers.

  

This home was been made possible by the collaboration of numerous churches, community and civic groups businesses and many individual donors and volunteers. Without all of the financial support we have received, as well as the boundless hours of sacrificial dedication from our volunteers on the build site this home would not have been possible.

 

We are still fundraising via our Thankful-Giving match campaign in partnership with Port Washington State Bank and their match of all donations up to $10,000 to allow us to complete grading and landscaping.

First Hand Overview: Learn about the Process from our Newest Homeowners in Ozaukee County!


Habitat for Humanity - Ozaukee is dedicated to the enrichment of our local community. By helping under-served residents realize their dream of home ownership, we help families and children achieve strength, self-reliance and stability. A house is more than a home and when you help families achieve their goal of home ownership the benefits to our community are boundless!

 

Strong and stable homes help to build strong and stable communities.
A decent place to live and an affordable mortgage create a situation where homeowners can save more, invest in education, pursue opportunity and have more financial stability. It can remove barriers to opportunities, success and health that might have been part of a family's life for years, if not generations. 

 

Investments in affordable housing are repaid in the form of stronger local economies; a stable, skilled workforce; a working social safety net and revitalized neighborhoods.

 

With a little help, we all have the potential to stand on our own.

         Strength                Stability            Self-Reliance            Shelter



10 New Homes = 10 Empowered Habitat Families

Starting with the first Habitat home completed in 2003, we have built 10 new homes alongside Ozaukee County families. Habitat home building efforts and new homeowners have contributed nearly $450,000 to the economy through local land development and building expenditures, taxes and fees, educational costs, retail spending and other economic activity.
