Sharon's Heart-felt Thank You

Sharon is a Milwaukeean through-and-through, having lived in our community for more than 30 years. Because of people like you, Sharon has a safe, affordable place to call home during this pandemic. After her kids moved out, she downsized and moved into a low-income housing development. It was what she could afford at the time but, unbeknown to her, it wasn’t safe. Every time it rained, water rushed down into her kitchen. She pleaded with her landlord to fix the issue, but it was no use.

After completing hundreds of hours helping to build her home and the homes of her neighbors, Sharon stood in her living room with the keys for the first time. Sharon realized a dream she’d never thought possible. She had become a homeowner.

Haynie's Story

Haynie faced significant uncertainty early on in his adult life. It’s a symptom of unaffordable housing that’s known all too well in our city: eviction. Even though Haynie was paying his bills on time, his landlord wasn’t. Imagine having your life turned upside down in a moment’s notice, and to no fault of your own.

In this week’s #GoodNewsTues, hear how Haynie overcame these struggles to ensure his family would never face something like this again.

#GivingTuesday is just around the corner. Will you join us in making sure more families, like Haynie's, can build strength, stability and independence? Choose your gift here: https://www.classy.org/campaign/giving-tuesday-2020/c312905

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❣
