First Home Repair Project for Veterans Completed


Habitat is offering a new Home Repair Program meant to serve qualifying military personnel in Manitowoc County as they so generously served us. In October, our inaugural Vet Home Repair was completed. MCHFH helped a local US Army veteran with a total roof repair. Hooah!

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. 


If you are or know of an existing veteran homeowner needing light external repairs, learn more here and complete an application today!

Cardboard City 2021 a Huge Success


The 6th annual Cardboard City took place October 15-24 as a hybrid event running virtually from October 15 through October 24, 2021 with an in-person, culminating event at First Presbyterian Church, Manitowoc. Our sponsors and participants this year were amazing. Participants slept outside in cardboard boxes, tents and in their vehicles to recognize and raise support for the homeless in our local communities. Braving the chill of a Wisconsin evening in October, those present heard speakers, enjoyed music, karaoke and fun!

This homeless experience event benefited Hope House, The Haven, and Habitat for Humanity, organizations that provide shelter and resources to assist those experiencing homelessness locally. Because of all the great community support, Cardboard City 2021 raised over $20,000! We're so blessed!

If you missed this year's fun, mark your calendars for October 2022!

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!
