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 caring citizens has changed lives beginning with our first single-family home in 2003. Since then, we've built a two-family home in 2006, a four-plex in 2009, and another single-family home in 2012. We 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.
This has been a groundbreaking year for Habitat for Humanity-Ozaukee as we undertake two home builds in one year. Whew!
We have one family safely tucked into their new home in Grafton. Now we are counting on your help to double our impact.
The Power of Two
It's amazing what we can accomplish when we work together. We like to call this the multiplier effect.
