Support Habitat La Crosse Area Programs
A fundraising campaign for Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area.
About This Campaign
You can picture it in your head with perfect clarity—smiling volunteers raising the framing on a new home, homeowners crying tears of joy while cutting the ribbon knowing their family will have a safe and affordable roof over their heads; these are the images that the name Habitat for Humanity brings to mind.
It has been four years since your Habitat expanded its homeownership program from one home every 18 months to 6 homes per year. Fifty-three local families have achieved the dream of owning their own home BECAUSE OF YOUR GENEROSITY! But did you know that Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area is doing so much more than building homes?
Understanding the needs of the community, YOUR Habitat offers a wide variety of programs that promote and support safe, affordable housing. Unfortunately, like most of America, the pandemic has had a huge impact on our organization. When COVID hit and the community hunkered down, Habitat fundraising events and volunteer opportunities came to a screeching halt. But it only made the need for many housing programs greater. For over a year now, we have had to suspend or greatly reduce some of the other wonderful programs we operate. The need is so great. With your support, all things are possible!

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area
Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry founded on the conviction that every family should have a decent, safe, and affordable place to live. We partner with low-income, hardworking families and the community to build simple, decent, and affordable housing. Established locally in 1992, Habitat La Crosse has built and rehabbed safe, stable and sustainable homes for families in need. Every family who partners with Habitat must complete 350 hours of sweat equity, working on the construction site and at the Habitat ReStore, and successfully pass home buyer education and financial counseling. Homeowners repay an interest-free 30-yearmortgage back to Habitat. Thanks in part to partner family sweat equity and volunteer labor, the cost of a home is kept affordable, with typical monthly mortgage payments around $650 including taxes and insurance. The revolving fund created by mortgage payments received allows Habitat to reinvest into the community through additional housing opportunities, creating a lasting and sustainable investment for years to come.
