A Note from Habitat for Humanity
Since our founding in 1984, the faith community has been integral in supporting Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity's work to help local families in need of safe, affordable housing.
 
Just like you, we're adapting during these unprecedented and uncertain times. We want to thank each and every one of you who've prayed for and supported Milwaukee Habitat through your volunteering and financial gifts in the past. And we want you to know we’re working hard to bring back volunteers as soon as possible. 
 
We invite you to watch this special message from Executive Director, Brian Sonderman, with more about how Milwaukee Habitat is adapting to address the challenges of the pandemic and how you and your congregation can continue to be involved.
