Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976, and has been partnering with families in need throughout the world for over 40 years. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent and sustainable place to live.
The Chippewa Valley Habitat for Humanity Affiliate was founded in 1991, and has built over 40 homes and has repaired dozens of existing homes in the Chippewa Valley.
Through our housing program, CVH4H partners with families in the Chippewa Valley to help them build a place they can call home. Habitat Homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers, and pay an affordable mortgage that works for them.
We also offer a Home Preservation program, to help assist families and individuals with minor home repairs on their existing homes to assure safety and sustainability.
We offer many volunteer opportunities for those looking to make a difference in their community. Including home builds, repair projects, fundraisers, positions are our retail store, and more! All skill levels- from a willing learner to a seasoned professional- are welcomed to volunteer with us. We have opportunities for everyone!
Together, we can all help build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Dear Habitat Supporters and Friends,
Due to rising concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 and the protection of vulnerable members of our community, we have decided to close the Chippewa Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Office until further notice. Our Board of Directors and Management staff will be paying close attention to the rapidly changing details regarding this virus, and hope that our closure will only be for a short period of time. We will keep you updated when we know more about reopening of the Habitat office and ReStore.
Our temporary closure includes the following:
All building programs and services
Our mission is one of service. The best way we can serve right now is to take a step back and support our community’s need to create space. When we feel it is safe to reactivate our services, we will be excited to do so with great energy and enthusiasm.
Our staff will continue the mission of Habitat for Humanity to the best of our abilities within these limited capacities. Our doors may not be open, but work will continue. If you are fortunate enough to have resources to share during this time, know that we are relying on your support, kindness, and generosity.
In closing, please take a moment to think about this powerful message from Jonathon Reckford, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity International:
“May those of us who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have no risk factors remember the most vulnerable. May we who settle in for quarantine at home remember those who have no home. As fear grips our country, let us choose love.”
Please stay safe and be well!!!
