Not Far from Home

“It’s kind of like going back to being a kid," Joe Goss said about volunteering with his brothers.

"We commute… I got to get him out of bed and get him in the car and pick up the other one,” Joe said as the brothers laughed.

“We used to come down here and buy our shoes in one of the stores that was about 10 minutes from here,” Joe Goss said. “So we knew the [Harambee] neighborhood 40, maybe 50 years ago.”

Building Pride In Homeownership

“I want to be an example for my kids and my family,” says Toni about why she wants to become a homeowner.

Toni was out on the build site to raise the first walls to her future home. It was an emotional moment that signified the culmination of hard work and dedication in which homeownership was no longer a dream, but a reality.

Great place to volunteer and give back to the community.
For anyone who might be interested Marquette University’s Habitat for Humanity is holding a fundraiser at Build-a-Burger at 633 W. Wisconsin on October 14th starting at 10:30am. Just mention Marquette Habitat when ordering and they will donate a percentage of the proceeds back to this incredible student organization so that they can give back to the community.
On behalf of the Defebaugh family, I would like to thank Habitat Milwaukee for inviting us to have my sister, Bonnie Defebaugh's, Celebration Of Life there today. I am sitting here in tears, thinking about the wonderful work my sister did there. It was her passion in life. Thank you. Thank you for making her life complete❣
