Habitat would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our donors and volunteers for their support and hard work in 2011. So many of you generously shared your time and hard earned money to help Habitat build simple, healthy, affordable homes for hardworking families in our community.

In 2011, we saw the number of qualified families coming to Habitat for a hand up increase significantly. And because of the generosity from people like you, Habitat was able to increase its homebuilding capacity, allowing us to provide healthy homes for 30 families in 2012!

We wish you a joy filled year ahead and thank you again for your generosity that will continue to bless families for years to come!
