Announcing Home Repair for Veterans Program
July 5, 2021
MCHFH Office, 1209 S. 41st Street, Manitowoc
Habitat is offering a new Home Repair Program meant to serve qualifying military personnel in Manitowoc County as they so generously served us.
Are you a veteran or active service member whose home could benefit from some minor external repair?
The Home Repair for Veterans Program focuses on high-impact, volunteer-friendly external construction projects that allow low-income homeowners to stay in their homes with improved comfort and safety.
Projects might include fixing a porch, building a wheelchair ramp or repairing steps.

Home Repair Project Complete
Volunteers came through in a big way during a Home Repair Program project on Fern Drive in Manitowoc this Spring. A beautiful ramp was constructed for the homeowner and we simply can't thank our volunteers enough. We couldn't make such a great impact in our community without people like you!

Proceeds Donated to "Strike Out Breast Cancer"
The Manitowoc County Habitat ReSale Center donated 5% of its proceeds received over several days in February to “Strike Out Breast Cancer” which went to benefit Manitowoc County Pink Heals, Angel on my Shoulder, Annette Boeder and the Kasey Herman Scholarship Fund. We simply can't thank our shoppers enough. We were able to donate $350 with their help!
Manitowoc Habitat Awarded Grant Funds
Manitowoc County Habitat would like to thank Community First Credit Union, in partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLB), for their generosity and support in 2020.
This fall FHLB and Community First presented $5,000 checks to four nonprofit organizations focused on affordable and sustainable housing, including the Manitowoc County Habitat for Humanity.
The grant monies came from FHLB’s new Targeted Impact Fund to support those populations disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis, including Black, Latino, Native American, elderly, rural, and low- and moderate-income communities.
Community First’s Cathy Mutschler presented the grant funds in early November to Manitowoc County Habitat's Jean Wakefield, Andy Kefalonitis and Fran Valitchka.
Everyone deserves a decent place to live, and everyone can do something today to help make that possible for another family.
