Bringing Affordable Housing to Waukesha County

Posted by on

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller with the mission to provide affordable housing to families in need. Since its inception, Habitat for Humanity has grown into a global organization with affiliates in over 70 countries.

One of these affiliates is Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County, located in Waukesha Wisconsin. Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County was founded in 1990 by a group of dedicated volunteers who were passionate about the mission of Habitat for Humanity.

Over the years, Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County has helped countless families in the community by providing them with safe and affordable housing. The organization works with volunteers and partner families to build and renovate homes, with the goal of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Affordable housing can help to alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life for people who might otherwise be forced to live in unsafe or overcrowded conditions or spend too much of their income on housing, leaving little money for other essentials like food, healthcare, and education.

In addition to providing housing, Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County also runs programs that help families achieve financial stability and improve their quality of life. These programs include financial education, home maintenance training, and neighborhood revitalization initiatives.

This summer, Habitat will be building a multi-home neighborhood, the first of its kind, in Waukesha near the Hadfield Elementary School. 

It's exciting to see an organization so passionate about helping people make their homeowning dreams a reality. 

One of the recipients, a single mom of three, will be one of the first to move into Domenica Park upon its completion. 

We have serve opportunities this May with Habitat for Humanity to help build these homes. You can signup here.
